Judas, We Hardly Knew Ye!

There can be no doubt that if we had been victorious on the Vistula, the revolutionary fires would have reached the entire continent.

I read "Stalin" by Oleg V. Khlevniuk last summer. Impressive.

I never really knew much about Stalin other than what Solzhenitsyn had written. Seems Stalin's fear of an Army uprising were very real, even if unjustified.

Stalin was PURE EVIL

That is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

We learned that by the time we began to confront "Social Studies" in FOURTH grade.

When is somebody going to do a "definitive" biography of GEORGY MALENKOV (1902-1988)?

And whatever happened to Nicolai Bulganin?

Do you think NINOTCHKA is rooted in truth, or is it sure ideologically driven fiction?

So this is how you ended up as a knownothing?
