Summary The second episode of this three-part series focuses on the abilities and successes of Joseph Stalin as a warlord. According to this documentary, Stalin liked to project an image of himself as a great military strategist, even calling himself 'Generalissimo' and constantly wearing military uniform. He is criticised as a warlord on several counts. First, he weakened the military during the "Great Purge" when, fearful of a coup, he had vast numbers of soldiers and top officers murdered. Secondly, he ordered a disastrous invasion of Finland, which resulted in a massive number of Soviet casualties. (From Germany, in German, Russian and Polish, English subtitles) (Part 2)
