Authored by the late immigrant writer Orest M. Gladky, edited and published by his daughter, Olga Gladky Verro. Each book presents six-part collection of short stories preserving facts and thoughts from the historic events in Russia--USSR from 1917 to 1971. The first part in this stirring anthology, "In Whose Name?," tells that civil war engulfed the Motherland and follows White Army volunteers defending Holy Russia from the Reds. In "The Dispossessed," Stalin renegs on the promise of the revolution--All land to the peasants!--and launches an onslaught on peasants through forced farm collectivization. The third part, "I Believe," describes how the Communist imposed Marxist dogma to eradicate belief in God. In the fourth part State secret police watchdogs relentlessly hound "The Enemies of the People" and send millions without trial to prisons and gulags. "The Humdrum Life in Socialist Paradise" captures snapshots of ordinary citizens' days in the Socialist-Communist State and reveals their strugle to survive and stay human under Soviet rule and Socialist-Communist-Bolshevik dictatorship. The last part, "Behind the Iron Curtain," tells with wry humor stories about events after World War Two, in Cold War Years and under Collective Leadership in USSR.
