In 1905 more than seven hundred Russian sailors mutinied against their officers aboard the battleship Potemkin, one of the most powerful battleships in the world. Led by the charismatic firebrand Matyushenko, they risked their lives to take control of their ship and fly the red flag of revolution. What followed was a violent port-to-port chase that spanned eleven harrowing days and came to symbolize the Russian Revolution itself.

This pulse-pounding story alternates between the opulent court of Nicholas II and the drama on the high seas. Neal Bascomb combines extensive research and fresh information from Soviet archives to tell the true story of the deadliest naval mutiny in history. Red Mutiny is a terrific adventure filled with epic naval battles, heroic sacrifices, treachery, bloodlust, and the rallying cries of freedom.

    " History of the mutiny on the Russian Battleship Potemkin... this was the infancy of the rebelion and ultimate overthrow of the czar of Russia. The story takes place in 1905, and is centered in the Russian Black Sea Fleet. "

    " A detailed look at the mutiny on the Potemkin. About halfway through I decided that I really didn't need to know anymore about the Potemkin, and quit reading. If you're really into Russian history you'll probably love this, but I got bored. "

    " Actually Ford read this is book. This book is about a little known historical incident, the first armed rebellion against the czarist regime of Russia. The reason it is not well known is because Lenin suppressed it. "

    " Great historical novel of the event that was the precursor to the Russian revolution. Great book. "

    " A gripping, page turning history that tells as much about the people involved as it does of events. This has led me to read more about the Russian revolution. "

    " For a book that I bought for $3.99 out of the bargain bin at Borders, this was surprisingly good. Mr. Bascomb knows how to tell an engaging story. Well worth reading. "

    " Life was really rough for the Russian sailors who were treated very poorly by the aristocrats. No wonder there was a revolution. "

    " A thrilling slice of Russian history prior to the 1917 Revolution; a hair-raising tale of war ships at sea; a story of raw human courage in the face of ruthless oppression; a testament to the power of one determined individual. Highly recommended. "
