In 1921, he left the country. After breaking ties with the anarchist movement, he returned to the Soviet union in 1935. L'armée révolutionnaire, dans le meilleur des cas, pourrait servir à la destruction du vieux régime abhorré ; pour le travail constructif, l'édification et la création, n'importe quelle armée, qui, logiquement, ne peut s'appuyer que sur la force et le commandement, serait complètement impuissante et même néfaste.

Easier than organising private ownership of land and buildings, easier than setting up a complicated state bureaucracy and most people can immediately see that it makes sense. While I found the book particularly intriguing, I also found it quite disturbing in the way the author describes the murder of various people as almost no incidence whatever, while only disgracing the murder of the people that were trying to make Makhnovism work. It's a bad call because they're doing it to take control of these anarchist troops and arrest Batko Makhno. As this movement was vilified by both white and red factions, it is not surprising.
The prose is a little heavy-handed at times, with Makhno sometimes appearing as a mythical hero. He invited the peasants and the insurgents to devote all their forces to chasing the Bolsheviks out of the country, without rejecting any allies. Taking into account inaccuracies, but still realizing that many of the things presented here have probably happened as such, this book offers hope beyond measures to the oppressed masses, all the while offering insight into what can doom such large scale experiments.

And there's a really cool bit where they get into a desperate three way war against the Petliurists and Denikin's cavalry. So Makhnov sets up a public 'debate' which is really just an opportunity to list this guy's crimes in public, get him irrational, and then put one in the back of his head.
