During a visit to Washington in 1954, Winston Churchill said, “If I had been properly supported in 1919, I think we might have strangled Bolshevism in its cradle, but everybody turned up their hands and said, ‘How shocking!’ ”
Five years later during a stop in Hollywood, California, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev told a perplexed audience, “We remember the grim days when American soldiers went to our soil headed by their generals to…. combat the new revolution. All the capitalist countries of Europe and America marched on our country to strangle our new revolution. Never have any of our soldiers been on American soil, but your soldiers were on Russian soil.”
Both men were referring to the already forgotten – and still obscure – Allied military intervention that is the subject of Damien Wright’s book, “Churchill’s Secret War with Lenin”.
