Top critical review
Sums up the basic points of Stalin's Russia...
on 22 February 2014
As the title have said, this is great if you want a brief and quick overview of Russian history during this period.
However, I've found it too simple for GCE history.
It is overly descriptive and narrative, lacks in critical analysis and would not recommend you quote these historians in an exam!
However, it is a good book if you want a foundation of knowledge to which you can build upon with more sophisticated books on Russian history
