    This flyer, which is printed with the heading "a 'sample' of the 'Bolshevik' propaganda at the Archangel Front", expresses the idea that American and British soldiers fighting the Russian revolutionaries are being traitors to the working class by serving the needs of the master class. It addresses the soldiers directly, reminding them of their work in factories back home, and accusing them of being "scabs" by siding against Russia. The flyer asserts that this fight is "part of the same class war that you have been carrying on in England and America", and implores the soldiers as "comrades" to "turn your guns on the real enemies, the sweaters and capitalists". It is signed by N. Lenin, President of the Council of Workmen's and Soldier's Deputies, and by G. Tchicherin, People's Commissary for Foreign Affairs. less
