Description
Russia under Stalin was a complete dictatorship and perhaps more people were destroyed by its ruthlessness than in any of the tyrannies of history. But in Stalin's 30 year rule the state emerged as a fully armed power, able to contest leadership with the awesome might of the U.S. itself. The debate goes on furiously as to whether the price paid by Russia in lives and in sorrow was the inevitable cost of the transition from the backwardness of Tzarism or whether it represented the criminality of a paranoic.
