If you could sum up Ten Days That Shook the World in three words, what would they be?

Expertly written giving a real feel for what it was like to live through those dramatic days. Details the politics of the different forces, political trends and figures involved through Extracts from their actual interventions into events and meetings of the soviets, Duma etc and the demands they put forward at key moments rather than lots of side commentary. Reed is however unapologetically sympathetic to the aims of the workers, peasants and revolutionaries, so many of the official historians of the revolution claim to be objective but are deeply hostile.

Any additional comments?

The narration and overall production are of a very high standard.
