Viking Books for Young Readers. A very well-written biography of Joseph Stalin and a recounting of the horrors surrounding his era. Most people think of Hitler when thinking of historical terrors, but this book brings to life Stalin, who was easily on the same level, if not higher. BrynDahlquis, January 14, 2013.

An account of the life of the man who shaped the Soviet Union, from pre-revolutionary Russia to its evolution as a superpower and the descent of the "Iron Curtain."

If you teach history to the middle grades or have a child of that age interested in history, you know that reading material more advanced than the 40-page survey intended for third graders yet not quite so heavy as to be called a "tome" can be very hard to find. Marrin's work fills the bill.

I first learned of Marrin when I acquired The Yanks are Coming: The United States in the First World War for a unit on WWI for my homeschoolers. A life-long history buff, I found that book to be the single best thing I've read on WWI.

When we think of WWII we think of Hitler but he had an evil twin, Stalin. Albert Marrin writes an eye opening history that breaks your heart when you realize that along with Hitler, Stalin killed so many of his own people and unlike Hitler, he had many, many, more years to exact his cruelty.

Use this in world history, it is so intriguing and informative, even in this generation of students that no longer like to read, it keeps them informed.

great book to read---history repeats itself, and it shows where some of our "american" ideas have originated

I absolutely love Albert Marrin. He is an excellent author for history, especially for high school. He has a pleasant writing style, and includes many detailed examples.

I read Stalin before I had my thirteen year old read it, and I was impressed. Marrin not only includes a biography of Stalin, but he adds much information about the Russian Revolution, Lenin, Hitler, WWII, the Korean War, and the Cold War. Much of Marrin's histories are this way. He takes a big chunk of history and puts it all together so we can see the entire picture.

Excellent read!!

I read this book for school and boy did it change how I viewed the world. I had always known that Stalin was an evil man but I just didn't know to what extent. Warning: this book is NOT for little children. What is contained in the book are stories that need no hype to make them horrifying. Marrin is straightforward and presents the truth of the situation without trying to sugarcoat or exaggerate anything. I guarantee you will come away with a greater appreciation for your own living conditions and well-being. I did.
I finished this book today, and I must say that I throughly enjoyed it.
