REVIEW Белая гвардия FREE DOWNLOAD Ó YEEZY950.US ¶ Mikhail Bulgakov Mikhail Bulgakov ¶ 1 DOWNLOAD Tells the story of the Turbins a once wealthy Russian family as they are forced to come to terms with revolution and a new regime. Blood is cheap on those red fields It is 1918 and Kiev in the Ukraine is at the swirling centre of the forces unleashed by war and revolution The three Turbin siblings live in the house of their recently deceased mother in the city They are White Russians still loyal to the Russian Tsar hoping against hope that he may have escaped the Bolsheviks and be living still But there are other factions too the German Army have installed a puppet leader the Hetman Skoropadsky and the Ukranian peasantry are on the march in a nationalist movement under their leader Petlyura This is the story of a few short days when the fate of the city seems up for grabs and the lives of the Turbins like so many in those turbulent times are under constant threat Great and terrible was the year of Our Lord 1918 of the Revolution the second Its summer abundant with warmth and sun its winter with snow highest in its heaven stood two stars the shepherds star eventide Venus and Mars uivering red I found the beginning of this book rather difficult because I had no idea who all the various factions and real life characters were nor what they were attempting to achieve But I soon realised that in this I differed less from the fictional characters than I first thought This is a book about confusion and betrayal shifting allegiances chaos and fear Bulgakov takes a panoramic approach following one character and then panning off to another This gives it an episodic feel and adds to the sense of events moving too uickly for the people involved ever to fully grasp The Turbins actually aren t in it a lot of the time but they provide a thread for us to catch at in the maze and a human side to the story for us to care aboutOne of the early episodes tells the story of the soldier Victor a friend of the Turbins who with 39 companions is ordered to defend the city from the approaching forces of Petlyura Ill euipped and insufficiently clothed for the extreme cold two of the men die of frostbite and the rest are lucky to survive They achieve nothing While reading this I was simultaneously reading the beginning of Trotsky s History of the Russian Revolution where he talks of the mass mobilisation of workers and peasants into the Russian army to fight against Germany in WW1 His description of the ill trained poorly euipped troops dying needlessly in vast numbers is chillingly similar and I found that each book lent verisimilitude to the otherAlthough the Turbins are on the side of the Tsar the book itself doesn t seem to take a political stance If anything it paints an eually despicable picture of all the various faction leaders as cowards hiding behind the men they send carelessly to their deaths As senior officers on all sides run into hiding middle ranking officers are left to decide whether to make a stand or disband their troops many of them no than young boys in cadet corps It gives an only too credible feeling for the chaos in the city for people not knowing what s happening and for each new rumour spreading like wildfire Amidst all this we see odd glimpses of life continuing boys out playing in the snow workers making their way to their jobs people shopping Through the Turbin brothers Nikolka and Alexei we see the battle each man must individually face between fear and heroism while Elena their sister must wait at home praying for their safetyIn the gaps between scenes of extreme brutality Bulgakov lets us glimpse his love for the city He describes the streets his characters pass through the alleyways they use to escape the ancient cathedral the huge statue of Saint Vladimir on the hill above the city But we are never allowed to forget the approaching threat But the brightest light of all was the white cross held by the gigantic statue of St Vladimir atop Vladimir Hill It could be seen from far far away and often in summer in thick black mist amid the osier beds and tortuous meanders of the age old river the boatmen would see it and by its light would steer their way to the City and its wharves In winter the cross would glow through the dense black clouds a frozen unmoving landmark towering above the gently sloping expanse of the eastern bank whence two vast bridges were flung across the river One the ponderous Chain Bridge that led to the right bank suburbs the other high slim and urgent as an arrow that carried the trains from where far away crouched another city threatening and mysterious Moscow As the chaos worsens so we see the atrocities that are never far from war the criminals jumping on the lack of order to terrorise an already demoralised citizenry the bodies left unidentified and unclaimed in the City s morgue the wounded frightened to seek help for fear of capture Not uite knowing who every faction was made it even unsettling though I wondered if Bulgakov s first readers would have known and so might have read it differently A truly brilliant book that while concentrating on one small city gives a brutal and terrifyingly believable picture of the horrors unleashed in the wake of bloody revolution And here we are one hundred years later with Moscow again invading the Ukraine this troubled and divided territory still fighting what is essentially the same war The snow would just melt the green Ukranian grass would grow again and weave its carpet over the earth The gorgeous sunrises would come again The air would shimmer with heat above the fields and no traces of blood would remain Blood is cheap on those red fields and no one would redeem itNo one wwwfictionfanblogwordpresscom the
