AN EXCITING READ...!...No Matter What the Common Tators may say.
on September 7, 2016
AN EXCITING READ...full of suspense and drama. Plus, as a history buff, I enjoyed reading and learning about Russian history. I know that other Common Tators have said such things as "the author digresses into a long-winded diatribe about the Cossacks and the Orthodox Church in Russia." But as someone who wants to read an exciting thriller and actually LEARN something of history at the same time, I highly recommend the book. My only regret is that in this treatise, the author didn't spell out enough just how austere Stalin really was, or how his atrosities compared to those of Hitler and the Third Reich. BUT...I do realize that that comparison would literally take VOLUMES to complete. So, I still recommend that you read it.
