Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book gives a dramatic blow-by-blow account of the June 1905 mutiny on board the Russian battleship Potemkin.

Synopsis:

Hailed as an important contribution both to history and to sea literature when first published in 1961, The Potemkin Mutiny gives a dramatic blow-by-blow account of the June 1905 mutiny on board the Russian battleship Potemkin. The revolt, immortalized in Sergei Eisenstein's famous motion picture, was considered by the Soviets a glorious moment in the people's fight against a tyrannical czarist government. Richard Hough chronicles events from the first rumblings of discontent to the closing scenes of the uprising that nearly brought about the Russian Revolution twelve years early. His balanced account depicts the protagonists not as symbols but as human beings reacting under powerful tensions.
