THE RED TER­ROR

History of War - - WAR IN FOCUS -

Un­re­strained class war­fare is set in mo­tion as a se­cu­rity mea­sure to liq­ui­date en­e­mies of the Bol­she­vik regime on the flim­si­est of grounds. “We must carry along with us 90 mil­lion out of the 100 mil­lion of Soviet Rus­sia’s pop­u­la­tion. As for the rest, we have noth­ing to say to them. They must be an­ni­hi­lated.” This quote from Zi­noviev, one of the mem­bers of the Polit­buro (the Bol­she­viks’ supreme rul­ing elite) sums it up. The White Guard forces re­spond in kind.

Red sol­diers hold a ban­ner, which reads, “Death to the bour­geois and their helpers. Long live the Red Ter­ror”
