With a utopian vision of the real world and the primary aim of eliminating the social classes to achieve equality, Joseph Stalin, in 1929, became the leader of the USSR. Accordingly, he undertook to reform the Soviet Union. Agricultural land was collectivized in the form of collective farms, agricultural goods and industrial products were pooled, and private property was abolished.
Ten years after his accession to power, the Second World War was declared. The Red Army, the Soviet military force, undertook to participate in the fighting, with the help of the Allies, to liberate Europe. However, the USSR was also affected by the battles and destruction of housing, transport networks, and factories, which were sometimes dramatic.
How did Stalin restore the Soviet Union after the Second World War? The Soviet leader sought to rebuild the depleted economy of the USSR, but used as an instrument of power, the philosophy of Stalinism, which reached its peak between 1945 and 1953, when Stalin died.
