Not the best in the world. However it does include some of the russian shit that you might need if you ever do a essay on Russia in 1905 and Lenin and other crap. Also a hilarious quote guarenteed to give you that excellent a*
One of the problems that lenin had to face in the civil war was food. Farmers where not making enough food to feed the Russian people and the Russian soldiers. Factories where slow and Lenin needed transport and weaponary. To solve this problem Lenin had to think quick on his feet, so he came up with war communism.
