In Red Flag, the people who were there - from members of the Red Guard to party activists to students - explain how Communism appealed to their deepest hopes and dreams. Through them, we hear how Communist leadership, under Lenin and later, Joseph Stalin, compromised the proletarian ideal - and how hope eventually gave way to despair. The people remember: the storming of the Winter Palace, Lenin, Bolsheviks, civil war, literacy campaigns, Lenin's death, Soviets' "five-year plan", collectivization, kulaks, "show" trials, Stalin's purges
