A good place to start,
This review is from: Stalin's Curse: Battling for Communism in War and Cold War (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you're not familiar with Stalin's reign (I use the term deliberately) then this is as good a place to start as any. If you already know a great deal about this tyrant and the 'hell on earth' he unleased on his country, then it's unlikely that this book is going to tell you anything you already didn't know. Is that a problem? No, not really because there's still a potentially large readership. From a novice's perspective this is a well written and informative read which merits a very good rating and, I would argue is sufficently interesting to stimulate further reading about Stalin. Recommended.
