Evolution Of Evil: Stalin
Stalin
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  October 16, 2016

For 30 years Joseph Stalin 'the man of steel' ruthlessly dominated the Soviet Union. Born into poverty on the fringes of the Tsarist Russian Empire, he became a gangster and then a revolutionary. His quest for absolute power transformed his nation, but at a brutal cost. His tools for advancement were famine, slavery and execution. So many millions died to secure his power that he can be accused of genocide. He made himself into a communist God, and condemned his people to live in fear for decades.
