Insurgent Mexico - first hand account of the Mexican Revolution, including personal interviews with Pancho Villa and his band, and taking part in their exploits. Reads like Gonzo HS Thompson, but 60 years earlier. It is all an amusing series of japes until his little fort is overrun and he has to scramble/run 30 miles across the desert to the next safe hacienda. 5 stars.

The War in Eastern Europe - Wide ranging eastern front travels in 1914. Somewhat uneven, but there are brilliant passages and observations here. There a some ugly anti-Semitic passages but overall Reed again provides terrific descriptions of his moments in time. His treatment of Moscow, Petrograd, and Constantinople are especially strong. 4 stars.

Ten Days that Shook the World - Previously reviewed, does not stand up at all. Reed is swept up in the fury, perhaps too close to take it in - reads like he was in a hurry to beat a deadline, which of course he was. 1 star. ( )
