    One thought on “Stalin: History in an Hour”

    1. This is a great little series The books give you a nice overview of the topic This one on Stalin is no different.

    2. As you d expect from something called History in an Hour the book moves briskly, skimming across the top of a broad lake of facts A single reading or listening for the audiobook will only give a vague impression, while subsequent visits to the text allows for greater elucidation One of my chief grumbles, however, is the single bias in the portrayal of Stalin While I do not believe that Stalin was someone to be necessarily admired or held in high regard and he did many things that were unquestion [...]

    3. Another enjoyable introduction to a topic from the history in an hour series With so many works published about Stalin this makes for a good starting point Some have described this as merely a chronology but I would argue that it provides a sufficiently detailed narrative of the life of Stalin and his regime Overall I enjoyed this book having limited previous knowledge of life of Stalin post Lenin s death.

    4. stalin worked his way into a couple of the other history in an hour books i read so, i feel like i got out of this because i came into it with a little bit of knowledgeyway, not a cool dude died because because were too scared of helping him wrong.

    5. This short book was wonderful I knew a bit about Stalin, now I m quite interested in learning so much That s the beauty of this series, it awakens your interest and forces you to go out and learn a bit Highly recommend

    6. Clear and concise I wish it had gone into detail about the cult of personality surrounding Stalin though, there was little mention about this in the book and that had been what I was interested in reading about.
