Stalin AUTHOR Ian Grey

Alin was able to disregard all sense of morality Yet through his magnetism he commanded the respect of his colleagues and the adulation of his people Even Winston Churchill held him in awe Stalin is a powerful history of Russia's evolution from backward nation to world power as well as a dramatic portrait of a man who was called both The Implacable and Beloved Fathe. A worthwhile read You don t understand the 20th century if you don t understand Stalin He is usually portrayed sympathetically almost as a victim of the West s duplicity and paranoia abouthis designs for the world Without Joe there would be no Soviet Union and despite the fact that he was directly or indirectly responsible for human deaths than anyone in history he is still highly revered as the Father of The USSR His force of will and unfailing vision regarding the viability of communism carried Russia from a third rate nation to a world power A remarkable man by any standard and not all evil if this record is correct His fingerprints are still all over our world today especially when one considers that Mao modeleded his own governance on his hero and mentor Joseph Stalin If we are to trust the author s take on post WW 2 reconstruction the leaders of the West drove JS to his extreme positions on European reconstruction by shifting from seeing him as an untrusted ally to the source of all evil We started the arms race He just had to keep up At one point the author uotes Western leaders as saying the use of the two Atom bombs on Japan was not necessary to defeat them but was done to scare Stalin and keep him in check He was shook by the presence of these weapons and immediately ordered his top scientists to learn how to make onefast The infamous and intriguing Russian espionage tales that marked the early Cold War era revealed how Western secrets were passed to Russian agents for bomb implementation plans The US followed with an even mightier Hydrogen Bomb which was replaced later by ballistic missiles Thus the Arms Race began A very interesting read despite the mountains of Russian names that made reading difficult much of the time

E all a messianic determination to lead Russia to a grand destiny Grey's comprehensive biography portrays Stalin as a complex paradoxical figure a leader whose power was rooted in the tsarist traditions he abhorred and whose tyranny was based on an ambition to ensure the strength of his party In his single minded dedication to the growth of Russia under communism St. This is an incredibly researched beautifully written and unbiased account of one of the most important figures in the 20th century Grey is not a communist and in the preface he made clear his disdain of Marxism but Grey sets aside his own opinions and gives an excellent account of the Russian historical perspective Stalin is a complex figure and Grey gives us a cut and dry account abundant with facts laying out Stalin s achievements policies and personal ualities I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn about Russia in the first half of the 20th century

    This is a very interesting book It covers the beginnings of communism in Soviet Russia through to the death of Stalin The first half is really about Lenin At Lenin's death it then becomes biographical of Stalin To me the author is too much in Stalin's thrall He glosses over the atrocities barely mentioning Katyn and the treatment of
