“In the Grand Theatre at Moscow,”
writes Dr. Haden Guest in the “Times”,
“Trotsky came into our box,
and we had the opportunity of talking over the situation.
There is no doubt that Trotsky is tremendously popular:
when he appeared at the front of the box
at the beginning of the third act,
he received a great spontaneous ovation. 
 
I had a little private talk with Trotsky about the Army…
The extent to which militarisation has gone in Russia
was in evidence everywhere…
The Army, which is one of the great pillars
and supports of the power of the Autocratic Council of Commissars
is becoming welded into a great Army
with a tremendous reserve…
 
If a new Russian autocracy is to arise,
it will be on Napoleonic lines…
The Bolshevists’ great supports are the
gigantic secret police under Dzerjinsky,
and the great army under Trotsky
 
Trotsky is the nominal head of the Transport Department,
but as he also holds the portfolio of War,
he has, in practice, 
no time to devote to transport,
and all is done by Sverdlov.”
 
Trotsky was formerly a journalist by profession. 
 
 
 
Even on paper, this man is definitely good-looking! 
At the height of his power.
This man is oozing with COMMANDING PRESENCE.
