Transcript of The Dictator Project: Joseph Stalin

In 1902 he was arrested and exiled to Siberia, which was why he adopted the name "Stalin" which means steel.
Although he wasn't a strong orator like Vlady, he excelled in operations in the revolution against Nicholis the second.He came to power as a General Secretary of the Communist party and then was a successor to Vladimir Lenin. His rise to fame wasn't without the fall of another. When Vladimir died of a heart attack, evidence suggests that he was poisoned by Stalin, it is most likely true. Stalin has been known to take out those who were in his way
At first when he was born he was known as Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili and later know as Joseph Stalin. As a child he was very frail, and contacted the chicken pox at age 7. The incident left him scarred on his face and his left arm was deformed. Because of this the other children treated him cruelly, which caused him to embark on a quest for greatness. Some say that his childhood years were the reason for his cruel streak for the people who had made him angry.
His Reign
During his reign, Stalin was a very ruthless and suspecting man. After Vladimir Lenin's death in 1924 Joseph gained more and more power over time. He eliminated the competition by denunciations and shifting of power had complete power by the late 1940's. Also he had many others exiled to Europe and the Americas, and he didn't stop there. He had many people arrested in the night being accused of aligning with capitalist nations. During his power he reversed the Bolshevik agrarian policy which took back land given to peasants and put them on collective farms. Another mistake he made was when he signed the nonaggression pact with Adolf Hitler and ignored that the Germans were gathering on there Eastern front. From his ignorance the Russians suffered many losses. Stalin locked himself in his room for days after the event.
His Reign 2 and End
When he finally came around, Germany occupied all of Ukraine and Belarus. On top of that the purges of the 1930's made the Soviet army weak and the government almost non functional. After huge efforts of the Soviet Army, they pushed the Germans back. He also encouraged North Korea's leader, Kim Il Sung, to invade South Korea, thinking that the U.S. would not interfere, and he was mistaken. Through the entire war, he gained popularity from his success. Though soon after his health deteriorated. After he found out about an assassination plot, he made a move to wipe it out. But before he could he died of a stroke.
