Most of these Trotsky questions are really based around 1917-1924 and then the debates with stalin

but in the one before they can even ask you things about him that are outside the time period! isnt that weird?

hey, this is from my trial paper. enjoy!

a) Identify the roles and policies undertaken by Trotsky in the Communist Party of the Soviet Union between 1917 and 1928.

b) "Stalin was moderate and methodical not to say pedestrian, but he was the only one skilled at building tactical alliances and this put him head and shoulders above the rest" M McCauley, 1993, The Soviet Union, 1917-1991
In light of this statement, evaluate Trotsky's failure to succeed Lenin as the leader of the Communist Party

· 2004 HSC - Write a brief biography of Leon Trotsky outlining the key events in his life

SOURCE:

Trotsky was loves a s a leader of the revolution, yet by the end of the 1920's his name had become a term of abuse. It took Stalin no more than five years to turn a hero into a pariah. Trotsky himself was partly responsible for this. His tragedy lay in the fact that in his tireless and passionate struggle with Stalin, he facilitated Stalin's seizure of power in the Party. It was Trotsky's own doing that allowed Stalin to surround him with a circle of scmismatics, heretics and otehr internal enemies. Paradoxically, it was Trotsky's furious fight against Stalin that helped Stalin to become a bloody dictator.
