Enorme libro sobre los tiranos Hitler y Stalin. Bullock does an excellent job in his dual biography staln arguably the two people who had the most influence on the 20th century.

A history teacher recommended this book to me, and initially I wasn’t sure a dual biography, particularly one of this length, would work, but Professor Bullock brings it off masterfully as he weaves together the political careers of Hitler and Stalin. I appreciate what the author is attempting to do, but page long tomes tend to run out of steam and could be told in a more concise fashion.


He reveals how each dictator relied on his powers of manipulation, deception and opportunism to rise to power and spread totalitarian regimes meant to wipe out the human spirit and large parts of humanity itself across the world. Actually I learnt a lot about Hitler too! Stalin on the other hand, was an insider who was not adept at public oratory. Bullock’s “Hitler and Stalin: Feb 17, Peter rated it it was amazing. Below is the extract from Wikipedia http: The early twentieth century and the first World War had eliminated imperialism in these countries leaving them uncertain about the best form of government.

Two definitive biographies for the price of one, with tons of historical analysis and comparisons in strategy and outlook year by year.
