By Max Gallo

La Révolution russe comme on ne vous l'a jamais racontée

À los angeles fin de décembre 1916, Raspoutine avait lancé cet avertissement au tsar Nicolas II : " Pas un des membres de votre famille ne restera vivant plus de deux ans. Le peuple russe les tuera ! "

Avec 1917, une ardour russe, Max Gallo nous fait vivre cette révolution fulgurante qui s'appuie sur l. a. désespérance d'un peuple affamé et violenté par un pouvoir tsariste autocratique.

Pendant ces jours de fièvre, nous rappelle Max Gallo dans un récit époustouflant, on chante La Marseillaise. Peu à peu, pourtant, c'est le portrait d'un Lénine froid et calculateur qui se dessine derrière les promesses faites au peuple : l'inspirateur implacable d'une " dictature du prolétariat " que Staline tournera à son seul revenue, installant l'un des régimes totalitaires les plus sanguinaires que l'humanité ait connus.

" Un siècle après los angeles révolution bolchevique d'octobre 1917, ses conséquences pèsent toujours sur le destin de los angeles Russie et celui du monde. Pour comprendre le temps présent, il faut que revivent ces destins brûlés à vif dans les flammes des espérances et des illusions. " Max Gallo
