WH Chamberlin's two volumes of the "Russian Revolution" (1935) are still worth reading. He was in Russia at the time of the revolution as a reporter for the Christian Science Monitor. Excellent stuff.
Two books by Arthur Ransome "Six Weeks in Russia, 1919" and "The Crisis in Russia 1920" are also interesting.
