The Soviet state was born of war and violence. More precisely, beginning with the Bolshevik-led October 1917 Revolution, the Soviet state was born into and subsequently embroiled in a second ‘Thirty Years War’ (1914-1945). Throughout these three cataclysmic decades, Soviet state and society were almost in a constant state of war, either without or within. Virtually besieged militarily and economically from its inception, the Soviet Union nearly succumbed to Hitler’s ‘war of annihilation’ during what Stalin called ‘The Great Patriotic War, 1941-1945’. Between these inter-state conflagrations, the Soviet Union was wracked by intra-state, domestic wars: most infamously, Stalin’s war on the peasantry in the guise of forced agricultural collectivisation and ‘dekulakisation’ (1929-1934) and his ‘Great Terror’ (1937-1938): covert war against so-called ‘enemies of the people’. It is the contention of this presentation that war and girding for war, not only decisively forged the Soviet state it disfigured it, particularly in its Stalinist incarnation.
