The Death of the Soviet Union

Moscow (Last Day Of The Soviet Union) by Conor O'Cleary


An interesting read and behind the scene look at the end the Soviet Union and the people involved in it. Even though this book claims to be about the last day of the Soviet Union it also delivers the events leading up to it. It does this by cutting the last day into sections and introducing and expanding the events surrounding to this momentous day, it takes us from 1985 through to 1991.

All in all this book is a great read that I recommend to one and all it is a highly engaging and entertaining book that delivers political intrigue at its best. It changed my opinion on many of the movers and shakers and left me with a fresh and enlightened view of the end of the 75 year experiment that was the USSR.
3.5 Stars
