Stalin was known as the ‘Iron Man’ of the USSR and the epithet fitted him like a glove. His real name was Joseph Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili and he was known as a ruthless administrator who brooked, no opposition. Born in Georgia in a shoemaker’s family, Stalin imbibed revolutionary ideas from an early age. He was arrested many times for his revolutionary activities by the Czar of Russia and was exiled to Siberia. He studied the thoughts of Karl Marx and set about to overturn the rule of the Czars. He took part in the Russian revolution of 1917. He was neither a big leader at that time, nor a forceful speaker, but possessed exceptional organising capacities. By 1922, he became general secretary of the Communist Party. Trotsky was working as right hand of Lenin in establishing the communist rule in Russia and it was generally presumed that he would be a successor to Lenin. Stalin was a clever politician and he raced ahead and Trotsky was exiled. After that, he took full control of the party and government. He wiped out the opposition and established a totally despotic rule.

He strengthened the USSR internally and kept it as a united nation by his strong policies and firm determination. He shall always be remembered in the Soviet history for making it a super power bloc. He has been widely criticised for his autocratic rule and ruthless methods. But, it cannot be denied that he laid the foundation of USSR as a strong communist country.
