The Life and Crimes of Joseph Stalin is a scathing indictment of the atrocities committed by the Soviet dictator, a highly detailed yet accessible biography, and a true crime pause resister of the highest order.
Joseph Stalin rose from humble roots to become the greatest madman of the 20th century. His disregard for human life dwarfs Hitler's, as does the scale of his crimes. This book by author Andrew Klein exposes "Uncle Joe" as the perpetrator of mass killings, mass incarcerations, and mass starvations across four decades.
From Stalin's close association with Vladimir Lenin and his role in the Russian Revolution to his criminal conduct in the 1930s' Red Terrors, the famines across his western territories, his role in WWII, and his hand in the rise of the infamous Gulag Soviet prison system, this book spares no detail and minces no words about the evil deeds of one of history's most brazen tyrants.
