Innenansicht der sowjetischen Führung. - Natürlich gefärbt. ( )
  BerndM | Mar 31, 2013 |
This was an incredibly interesting book. The style was very informal so it was actually a pretty easy read, long, but easy. It will be enjoyed by any history buff, and a must read for anyone studying Russian history or US-Russia relations. It covered the topics of the rise of communism/socialism, Stalin, the world wars, internal fighting and succession after Stalin's death, the Cuban missile crisis, and more.
The book gives a positive take on socialism, which I found somewhat refreshing after only reading pro-capitalist material my entire life. However, while it was being pro-socialism, it also time and time again indirectly alluded to how much better off the United States was compared to the USSR.
Another excellent aspect of this book are the footnotes done by the editor. They were just the right amount, would point out when Khrushchev was correct, and when he would completely ignore the facts. ( )
