I dedicate this book to my
Comrades in France and Spain,
For we must try to rescue the
true face of the Revolution from
oblivion and legend;
This is necessary to purge
our strength,
to obey the highest necessity more
freely,
not to ask it to justify
our errors,
to better accomplish what
must be accomplished,
And so that man will be reborn
one day in every man.

V.S.

Since its been ten years since the MIA uploading of this book stalled and apparently my own copy is the same translation I'll be uploading the remaining chapters after I've typed them up into a word doc. This will take awhile.
