Stalin’s War

‘I trust no one, not even myself.’ So the merciless dictator of the Soviet Union reportedly once said. In this new book, Sean McMeekin explores the Second World War from Joseph Stalin’s perspective. From his complex relations with both Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt, to his underhand territorial ambitions across the globe, it is clear very few others could trust him either.
