Yezhov Vs. Stalin:
The Truth About Mass Repressions
and the So-Called ‘Great Terror’ in the USSR
by Grover Furr
Yezhov Vs. Stalin is the first accurate account of the so-called “Great Terror” in the Soviet Union in 1937-1938. In this book, Grover Furr answers the central questions concerning the mass repressions known as the “Ezhovshchina” or, by anticommunists, the “Great Terror”:
* Did hundreds of thousands of innocent victims meet their deaths?
* Was Joseph Stalin responsible for these murders, as is universally claimed?
* If — as the evidence demands that we conclude — Stalin was innocent and in fact put a stop to this massive crime, why were Ezhov and his men able to go on killing many innocent people for more than a year?
