Description

The author examines Soviet attempts to intervene directly in order to remould an Iranian nationalist movement in the image of Bolshevik revolution and thus aid the "crushing of capitalism". An effort doomed to failure by the doctrines of proletariat struggle that drove it, the intervention of the "Persian Red Army" was, due to its terrible cost in Russian lives, obscured behind an official history of the "Persian Revolution".
