about this book

From the author of the seminal The Last Tsar comes the most remarkable and definitive book yet to emerge from the fall of the U.S.S.R.  With full access to the top-secret Presidential Archives, KGB archives, never-before-seen marginalia in books from Stalin's library, diaries, hundreds of interviews, and more, Radzinsky traces the arc of Joseph Stalin's ascent to absolute power, creating a fascinating picture of Stalin's childhood and family, uncovering the truth behind Stalin's relationship with Lenin and evidence that Stalin was a Tsarist double agent, and shedding new light on Lenin's death, the show trials, Stalin's relationship with Hitler, World War II, Stalin's plans for nuclear Armageddon, and Stalin's murder. Translated by H.T. Willetts.
