Nestor Makhno in the Russian civil war

Early 1980s British perspective about Makhno and the Makhnovists, this is a sympathetic examination of their tactics and activity.

Malet certainly was not a "non-anarchist" at the time he wrote this. He had been active in movement for quite some time, both in London and SCotland and joined the Organisation of Revolutonary Anarchists.

Oops, though I got that from an anarcho site. This is up on archive.org under a creative commons license. They have a better PDF that I'll upload. Found the full text too though I've no clue how to do child pages and that, so someone else might have to fix that up.

In Malet's book, there is a reference to the French anarchist Benar speaking at Makhno's funeral. In actual fact, this was Pierre Besnard, one of the founders of the CGT-SR.
