Root through the annals of world history and you would be hard-pressed to find any more evil and unprincipled person than Adolf Hitler.
Except, perhaps, for Josef Stalin, the Soviet dictator and Hitler’s partner in infamy.
By most historians’ reckoning, Stalin killed at least twice as many people as the Nazi warlord. It’s fair to question whether World War II ever would have started if it wasn’t for him.
That’s why it’s rather surprising that the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford plans to erect a privately funded bust of Stalin at the monument next year.
