Few men have gone down in history with comparable infamy to Joseph Stalin. Stalin was a figure as ruthless as he was bold. First and foremost among his ideals was his own prosperity. Nevertheless, he maintained the appearance of a noble statesman. So dedicated was he to this honorable persona that he committed multiple atrocities in order to enforce that impression of himself within the minds of his people.
To foreign entities, Stalin was a difficult ally and a terrifying enemy. His desire for power manifested in a number of horrifying ways. He abused not only his own people but also the peoples of surrounding areas. Conquest was only a single one of the tools he utilized to consolidate his power. Modern historians have remarked that Stalin was so powerful that he could erase the entire existences of those who defied him. Nightly convoys of armed agents would move on his orders to eliminate those even remotely suspected of disrespect toward Stalin.
