Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Chief Culprit: Stalin's Grand Design to Start World War II (Paperback)
How have we as an entire culture, an entire civilisation, allowed ourselves to be so deceived? They say the bigger the whopper the more believable it is. Just read the first 4 pages where Suvorov compares Hitler to Stalin. This is quality writing. Have you seen this guy on YouTube (Suvorov)?? An extraordinary tour de force!...and actually quite funny too..a real performance. This is a book that needs to be read by everyone as it alters -or should- our complete world view. Unfortunately it will require all our history syllabuses in schools to be completely rewritten. So what will probably happen is that it will be ignored. Based on documents and files available since the collapse of the Soviet Union it shows clearly that Stalin set up Hitler as the fall guy ('Icebreaker' was Stalin's codeword for Hitler) to prepare the ground for a complete Soviet conquest of Europe...and beyond. And the beauty of the plan was that Stalin was going to be seen as a liberating hero!! Barbarossa as 'sucker punch'? No. Hitler's last desperate throw of the dice as he slowly realised he had been duped...and how!
