History of the Civil War in the USSR, Volume 2

Here’s volume two, from 1947.  I have read in a number of histories of the Soviet Union that this volume was never published.  Clearly not true.  The implication was that Stalin’s purge of Old Bolsheviks and the consequent rewriting of history was too all-encompassing for even a book written by Stalin himself to keep up.  But it was 10 years late.


I always liked the images of Lenin in Razliv, and the straw hut that he lived in.  Very romantic.


A couple of dashing portraits of young Joseph.
