Stalin: Triumph and Tragedy
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802111653, Hardcover)This is a biography of Stalin. The files of the Communist Party, the military and the secret police, as well as Stalin's personal files and library - with his scrawled comments in the margins - were opened to the author alone for this book. The documents were able to reveal why Stalin emerged as Lenin's successor, why he wiped out the intelligentsia and the leaders of the Red Army, why he terrorized an entire population while proclaiming his regime the most popular in Russian history.
