The Rise of the Soviet Union    NEW!

With the collapse of the Romanov Dynasty, Lenin would bring Communism, not only to Russia, but to the world. The Leninist/ Marxist plan was to spread across Russia, resulting in the Soviet Union, but also to Asia, the US, and Western Europe. By the end of World War II Soviet Russia would be the greatest military in the world and would become master of Central and Eastern Europe. Most populations, outside of the Soviet Union, would never see the Centralization of government production and agriculture, which resulted in mass famines, deprivations, and purges resulting from an iron grip on information and actions. The course will end with the death of Stalin and how the world looked in 1953.
