Description

The Russian Nobelist's major work, back in print for the centenary of World War I and the Russian Revolution

In his monumental narrative of the outbreak of the First World War and the ill-fated Russian offensive into East Prussia, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn has written "a dramatically new interpretation of Russian history" (Nina Krushcheva, The Nation ). The assassination of the tsarist prime minister Pyotr Stolypin, a crucial event in the years leading up to the Revolution of 1917, is reconstructed from the alienating viewpoints of historical witnesses. The sole voice of reason among the advisers to Tsar Nikolai II, Stolypin died at the hands of the anarchist Mordko Bogrov, and with him Russia's last hope for reform perished. August 1914 is the first volume of Solzhenitsyn's epic, The Red Wheel ; the second is November 1916 . Each volume concentrates on a critical moment or "knot" in the history of the Russian Revolution.

display_descriptionIn this monumental narrative of the outbreak of World War I and the ill-fated Russian offensive into East Prussia, the author has written "a dramatically new interpretation of Russian history." From the alternating viewpoints of all involved, August 1914 reconstructs the assassination of the tsarist prime minister Pyotr Stolypin, a crucial event in the years leading up to the Revolution of 1917. Stolypin, the sole voice of reason among the advisers to Tsar Nikolai II, died at the hands of the anarchist Dmitri Bogrov, and with him perished Russia's last hope for reform. The first "knot" in Solzhenitsyn's multipart epic, The Red Wheel, August 1914 is a major work from the Russian Nobelist, back in part for the centenary of World War I and of the beginnings of the Russian Revolution.
