I really enjoyed this insight into a true believer. It has helped me understand how some of President Trump's supporters can ignore the facts and continue to believe. The story was well written and I was amazed that someone of Mr. Fields education and experience could continue to believe in Stalin's brand of communism even when confronted with the obvious facts that Stalin was all about Stalin and power.

It is a must read for those interested in the early days of the US's dealings with the Soviet Union. The author did a great job of connecting the dots in such away that it was easy to see how much of a believer Mr. Fields was and continued to be despite the impact on his family.
