Whisper of the Blade
Revolutions, Mayhem, Betrayal, Glory and DeathBook - 2001
Revolution brings tragedy, terror and heroism. Using historical texts and eye witness accounts as well as his own interviews, the author shares his understanding of revolutionary events that have shaped the course of history. His curiosity and amazement are reflected in the pages as is his irreverence for the conventional recitation of history. Progressing from the 18th to the 20th century, Durschmied provides a snapshot of the French Revolution; the Red October rising in Russia; Operation Walkure in Germany; Che Guevara's exploits; the rise and fall of Emperor Hirohito in Japan; and the fall of the Shah of Iran.
