  Stalin’s Order #, commanded on the 17th November , declared that Partisans wearing German uniforms, particularly those of the Waffen-SS, were to destroy all settlements within a swathe of about 40 – 60 km depth from the main battle lines and to ruthlessly kill the civilian population. During the ensuing Great Terror, which included the notorious show trials of Stalin's former Bolshevik opponents in and reached its peak in and , millions of innocent Soviet citizens were sent off to labor camps or killed in prison. A History of Modern Russia by Robert Service is the textbook for this class but has a chapter devoted to Stalin’s Great Terror.

Stalin's government was a clan and a mafia of fanatics who lived in a fantasy world of ubiquitous conspiracy and the intrigue surrounding it. The Stalinists used backward and barbaric methods of terror to destroy their supposed enemies and to realize their goals of modernizing Soviet society. In his new book, Baberowski hardly discusses "culture.".
