History of War - - TOVARISCH – THE FACE OF RUSSIAN RESISTANCE -

As friends and a civil­ian func­tionary wit­ness the pro­ceed­ings, a Rus­sian sol­dier and his be­trothed are given the party’s stamp of ap­proval and of­fi­cially mar­ried, un­der the all-see­ing eye of the premier and gen­eral sec­re­tary of the cen­tral com­mit­tee of the com­mu­nist Party. Stalin re­mained in power from 1924 un­til his death in March 1953 at the age of 74. Born in the Ge­or­gian Repub­lic, his orig­i­nal fam­ily name was Dzhugashvili, but later changed it to ‘Stalin’, mean­ing ‘will of steel’.
