    Leon Trotsky Julius Martov, letter to Pavel Axelrod on Leon Trotsky (2nd March, 1903) Lenin has proposed to us that we admit Trotsky, whom you know, to the board of editors, with full rights. His literary work shows undeniable talent, he is quite "ours" in thought, he has wholly identified himself with the interests of Iskra, and here, abroad, he wields considerable influence, thanks to his exceptional eloquence. He speaks magnificently; he could not do better. Anatole Lunarcharsky

    • 2 Pages

    Many historians such as Issac Deutscher suggest that, “Trotsky was a revolutionary hero” despite his arrogance and ego, he was still considered significant in Russia. He was greatly admired for his role as a leader and brilliant strategist during times of crisis, such as in the 1917 November revolution, the Russian Civil War and as a lone voice in exile. Though his status was prominent in Russia, he made a slight difference and gained very little recognition internationally. The evidence of historical

Trotsky, as recognized by Lenin in his last will and testament, was the most talented man in the committee to take the highest office, and yet in hindsight historians ‘cannot conceive how he would be in a position to do so’ (Pipes) . Despite Trotsky possessing talent and ability to lead as demonstrated in his career as Commissar of War where he won the Order of the Red Flag , his political position limited his influence in the power

Trotsky’s characteristic organizational, oratorical and literary skills were undermined by his lack of understanding of the counter-revolution (led by Stalin) and his inexperience as a political leader. Ultimately
