The Soviet victory was a disaster for imperialism. If the first world war had ushered in the Great October Socialist Revolution and brought into existence the mighty USSR, the second world war gave birth to an entire socialist camp, which encompassed a third of the globe and a quarter of the world’s population.
This second edition of our popular pamphlet has been produced to meet the very real need for some fact-based history. Only by understanding our past will we be able to successfully build a bright, socialist future, free from the entirely unnecessary scourges of poverty, disease and war.
