The 1918 treaty of Brest-Litovsk: curbing the revolution - Guy Sabatier

The Bolshevik delegation arrives at Brest-Litovsk

A detailed historical account and political analysis of the treaty that marked the official conclusion of the First World War on the Eastern Front, in which the author stridently advocates the position of the “left communists” who opposed the treaty and instead called for international revolutionary war, with extensive discussion of the connection between the opposing views on this question in the Bolshevik Party and crucial domestic controversies concerning revolutionary social organization and economic policy.
