Description
Stalin's post-war Russia is a study in surrealist contrasts. It is a world of immense suffering, mainly the result of a war that took tens of millions of lives and wrecked huge areas of the country; a world of immense bitterness over the bewildering about- face of the allies of the western world who cancelled Land-Lease aid the moment the Nazis had been eliminated and began courting and strengthening former enemy states. Yet there was great pride in the victories over the Nazi war machine and growing confidence as major internal problems were overcome. Indeed, the pace of reconstruction was spectacular enough to make Russia by 1952 one of the two dominating powers, challenging even the United States. Over all the changes the brooding, suspicious Stalin presided, giving his name to the inflexible type of Communism that controlled the actions, even the thoughts, of nearly 200 million people.
