Volkogonov on a few issues. The one thing I would say about this book is that it is slightly mistitled An exhaustive and somewhat comprehensive biography. The legend of Lenin is deconstructed. Many will see him in a different light. The one thing I would say about this book is that it is slightly mistitled.
