The Soviet Red Army originated as the defence force of the world’s first workers’ state. Led by the Bolshevik Party, it emerged victorious in the bloody 1918-20 civil war. In the later 1930s Stalin massacred its leading cadre, a crime for which the Soviet people paid dearly when Hitler invaded the USSR in World War II. Erich Wollenberg, a German communist who held high office in the Red Army, provides a fascinating and truthful account of its first 20 years.
