Book Details

Title:Out of the Night
Krebs, Richard Julius Herman  Writing under the pseudonym: Valtin, Jan   
Published:   1941
Publisher:Alliance Book Corporation
Tags:history, non-fiction, semi-autobiographical

This reads like a novel, with vivid character and location descriptions, but it is not.

It is written by a propagandist trained in Moscow around 1920.

It was famous when it came out in the 1940s.

It is the story of a young man recruited by Soviet Communists, who worked as an agent provocateur against the Weimar Republic, against the Capitalist ship owners, and then against the Nazi brown shirts.

He gives vivid detail of travels around the world organizing ship- and dock-worker strikes, building sailors' rest areas for propagandizing, passing money to Communist organizers in Asia, the U.S.A., and South America.

He describes the violence pervading Germany in the 1930s as the Nazis, the Socialists, and the Communists fought each other in pitched street battles, in elections, and in rallies.

He organized Communist cells in the Nazi prisons, after the Nazis got control of the German government.

Skillfully written but very disturbing. [Suggest a different description.]
