The reverberations of this gargantuan struggle are felt everywhere to this day. Central, of course, to the catastrophe were the dictators Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler and this book makes unprecedented use of recently opened Russian and German sources to explain how their pursuit of utopian - and dreadfully flawed - ideals led only to dystopian nightmare. The book
provides a powerful social-historical account of all three dictatorships and carefully documents their similarities and differences. This remarkably ambitious book tells the story of the great social and political catastrophe that enveloped Europe between 1914 and 1945. In a groundbreaking work Robert Gellately makes clear that most comparative studies of the Soviet and Nazi dictatorships are undermined by neglecting the key importance of Lenins role. The author rejects the myth of the ' good' Lenin and demonstrates his centrality in the unfolding drama. In a period of almost continuous upheaval society was transformed by two world wars, the Russian Revolution, the Holocaust and the rise and fall of the
Third Reich. It traces the escalation of conflicts between Communism and Nazism and shows how the vicious rivalry between Stalin and Hitler led inescapably to a war of annihilation and genocide. Combining a powerful narrative with profound analysis, acclaimed historian Robert Gellately argues that these tragedies are inextricably linked and that to consider them as discrete events is to misunderstand their genesis and character.

|Young Stalin Orion Books Simon S.M. |
This enthralling biography that reads like a thriller finally unveils the secret but extraordinary journey of the Georgian cobbler' s son who became the Red Tsar. What forms such a merciless psychopath and consummate politician? Was he illegitimate? Did he owe everything to his mother - was she whore or saint? Was he a Tsarist agent or Lenin' s chief gangster? Was he to blame for his wife' s premature death? If he really missed the 1917 Revolution, how did he emerge so powerful? Born in poverty, exceptional in his studies, this charismatic but dangerous boy was hailed as a romantic poet, trained as a priest, but found his mission as fanatical revolutionary. The secret world of Joseph Conrad-style terrorism was Stalin' s natural habitat, where he charmed his future courtiers, made the enemies he later liquidated, and abandoned his many mistresses and children.

|Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War Книга по Требованию Frederic P. M. |
The dust jacket summary asks, "Were World Wars I and II — which can now be seen as a thirty-year paroxysm of slaughter and destruction — inevitable? Were they necessary wars? Were the bloodiest and most devastating conflicts ever suffered by mankind fated by forces beyond men’s control? Or were they products of calamitous failures of judgment? In this monumental and provocative history, Patrick Buchanan makes the case that, if not for the blunders of British statesmen — Winston Churchill first among them — the horrors of two world wars and the Holocaust might have been avoided and the British Empire might never have collapsed into ruins. Half a century of murderous oppression of scores of millions under the iron boot of Communist tyranny might never have happened, and Europe’s central role in world affairs might have been sustained for many generations. Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War: The book was released in May 2008. High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! How Britain Lost Its Empire and the West Lost the World, is a book by Pat Buchanan.
|Antisemitism and Joseph Stalin Книга по Требованию Frederic P. M. |
While communist leaders including Joseph Stalin have publicly denounced antisemitism, instances of antisemitism on Stalin' s part have been witnessed by contemporaries and documented by historical sources. In 1947, Stalin joined the United States in supporting the creation of Israel, and supported Israel in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War with weaponry supplied via Czechoslovakia and encouraged his supporters to serve in the Israeli armed forces. Despite his recognition of Israel in 1948 and support from Israel' s Mapam party, many campaigns and purges were organized at home that were antisemitic in nature.
