Description
Fifty years after his death, Stalin remains a figure of powerful and dark fascination. The almost unfathomable scale of his crimes -- as many as 20 million Soviets died in his purges and infamous Gulag -- has given him the lasting distinction as a personification of evil in the twentieth century. But though the facts of Stalins reign are well known, this remarkable biography reveals a Stalin we have never seen before as it illuminates the vast foundation -- human, psychological and physical -- that supported and encouraged him, the men and women who did his bidding, lived in fear of him and, more often than not, were betrayed by him.
