Potemkin

can anyone recommend a good read about the mutiny on the Potemkin?

from what I know should be a fascinating tale.

There's a book called, strangely enough, " The Potemkin Mutiny" by Richard Hough that's pretty good.

There is one crucial problem with the widely accepted account of what happened. It isn't true.

Yes the
movie was a great piece of cinema propaganda and great fiction.

the Richard Houghs book 1961, is it a dramatized account. Red Mutiny, 2007, looks like a good historical read.

Looks like a trip to the Library is in order.

Thanks
