Peter Thompson’s 21st book

Posted: November 25th, 2020

PETER THOMSON’S “The Quest for Freedom” was published this June, and commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the death of the great socialist reformer who personified the Russian Revolution of February 1917 and yet who is remembered today, if at all, as ‘the man who lost Russia’.

Peter Thompson has written extensively on war, royalty and big business. He won the Blake Dawson Prize for Business Literature for “The Big Fella: The Rise and Rise of BHP Billiton” (Random House Australia 2009). His works include “Pacific Fury”, a best-selling one-volume history of the Pacific War, “The Battle for Singapore 1942”, and the Fleet Street memoir, “Cudlipp’s Circus”.

With Tony Delano, he also wrote “Maxwell: A Portrait of Power” (Bantam Press 1988), the very first biography of Robert Maxwell which exposed the Mirror publisher’s criminality while he was still alive (and plundering the MGN Pension Fund), and which he succeeded in banning in his lifetime.

The Quest for Freedom: A life of Alexander Kerensky the Russian Unicorn is available from Amazon at £47.99 (hardback), and £7.96 (Kindle).
