Stalin backtracks, March 2, 1930
How well did Joseph Stalin know history?
A seminary drop-out, he of course knew a thing or two about past eras, but it would be a stretch to assume that he had extensive, in-depth knowledge of history. It does appear, however, that where he felt they were relevant to him, Joseph Vissarionovich did indeed draw lessons from the past.
