Vladimir Fedorovich Dzhunkovsky, the subject of this book, was a witness to his country’s unfolding tragedy—the decay of the tsarist autocracy, world war, revolution, the rise of a new regime, and its descent into terror. But Dzhunkovsky was not just a passive observer, he was an active participant in the troubled and turbulent events of his time, often struggling against the tide. Overtaken by the Night paints a fascinating picture of Dzhunkovsky’s incredible life that reveals much about a long and crucial period in Russian history. It is a story of Russia in revolution reminiscent of the fictional Doctor Zhivago, but even more extraordinary for being true.
