The Fortress

By Robert Payne

‘The Fortress’ is a dramatic and gripping work of history: the century-long struggle of the Russian revolutionaries to overthrow the monarchy. Their punishment was to be thrown into the Peter and Paul Fortress in Leningrad, the most dreaded of Russian prisons and a symbol of Tsarist cruelty, where they were tortured, sometimes to death, or left to rot. This is the powerful story of these Russian revolutionaries who fought for a greater freedom and unwittingly opened the way for a greater tyranny – the Bolshevik Revolution.
