Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book outlines and details some very scary history. Most Americans are aware of the Holocaust and its nightmarish evil but few are aware of the evil of the Soviet Gulag. Where the Nazis primarily selected victims based on racial or religious attributes the Soviets cast a far wider net and used the victims as tools to improve the Soviet economy. Decisions were made that gave more food to the victims so they could work twice as long before dying. Lavrenty Pavlovich Beria is the personification of evil and this book was so startling I have difficulty sleeping after discussing it. Promotion through assassination was standard practice in the Soviet Union. Rounding up people for arrest based on the manpower needs of the slave labor camps was standard operating procedures for Lavrenty Pavlovich Beria and his superiors. My review does not do the evil of Lavrenty Pavlovich Beria justice and I recommend this book only to those with a strong stomach.
