But if in a general way there is no question about where to begin, when to begin,
and how to begin, then, to be sure, nothing is left of the episodic disagreements
with Lenin—or for that matter of tactics in general. In John Reed's book there is a
story that on the 21st of October the leaders of the Bolsheviks held a “second
historic conference” at which, as Reed was told, Lenin said: “The 24th of October
is too soon to act. We must have an all-Russian basis for the insurrection, and on

The story of the Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917 has been told a thousand
