"I Choose Freedom"
The title of a wonderful epic written, in beautifully formed English, by Victor Kravchenko about his personal and political life. The story follows him, in great detail, through life growing up before, during, and after the Russian communist revolution. He goes on to document his life as a devout Party member, the fails of Communist Russia, and finally, his defection. All in all, a wonderful read, if you are historically inclined or not.
