I think that there are some similar sets which include books (or ‘texts’) after 1934 – but I do not possess any of these sets. I have always thought that JV Stalin’s leadership skills of the USSR 1936-1945 would be of the utmost interest for the working-class! From 1936-1939 the USSR coordinated the International Working-Class in its fight against the Catholic-backed ‘Fascist’ uprising in Spain! During the late 1930s the Soviet Red Army not only took on a ‘Fascist’ Finnish Army (an enemy encouraged by Hitler and the capitalist West) – and whilst doing this also inflicted consecutive military defeats upon some of the best Units the Imperial Japanese Army had to offer (during 1938 on the Manchurian-Korean border – and during 1939 on the Manchurian-Mongolian border). What follows, however, involves a report made by JV Stalin during December, 1917, when the Catholic Church (and capitalist West) was deliberately causing derision primarily throughout Western Ukraine – interpreting the presence of an ‘Internationalist’ Soviet Army (which included Ukrainian volunteers) as being merely a ‘Russian Army’ pursuing Bourgeois ‘Nationalist’ aims of conquering land and subjugating populations! As a text, it is like a script exactly describing what is happening in the Ukraine today! Of course, there is a ‘Russian Army’ today – but it is coming to the aid of those Ukrainians in the ‘East’ of that country who want nothing to do with the US-backed Neo-Nazi regime headquartered in the West of Ukraine!
The vicious (Bourgeois) Capitalist System – led by the US, UK and EU (and assisted by the fascistic Trotskyites) – has been extremely successful in turning-back the 1917 (Soviet) Revolution! Che Guevara was ‘murdered’ early on by the US-backed fascists within South America! Karl Marx wrote that the world-wide Communist Revolution would probably not be achieved in easily defendable events! We – the ‘Proletariat’ – will suffer many and continuous setbacks on the path to genuine Socialism! Since President Kennedy established the ‘illegal’ Blockade of Cuba – the US has been guilty of committing a continuous ‘Crime Against Humanity’ against Cuba – just as Zionist Israel has continuously committed against the beleaguered Palestinians! The Proletariat must not give-up! We must fight for every inch of ground the bourgeoisie takes from us so that the cost to the fascists eventually becomes so great that the courage of the greedy will faulter and fail! This is how we win – this is how we make a better world!
The UK is no longer a member of the EU – and yet behaves politically as if nothing has changed – and is not (yet) a ‘State’ of America – and yet follows every foreign policy dictate of the US as if 1776 never happened and the rolls of ‘Master’ and ‘Servant’ have been reversed! Liz Truss is a White, middle-class Thatcher wannabe which the Tory Membership carefully navigated through the field of ‘non-White’ Tory Leader candidates – to an audible sigh of relief in Tory Headquarters! The British Conservative Party likes to ‘mimic’ the equality of ‘Socialism’ whilst delivery the ‘tyranny’ and ‘division’ of ‘Fascism’! Tory women leaders are OK providing they a) behave like the men they are temporarily replacing, and b) advocate the type of right-wing and far-right policies that deny working-class and non-White women and girls the type of rights the position they hold gives the false impression they already possess! The British Unions that led the General Strike of 1926 were inspired by the (Marxist-Leninist) 1917 Soviet Socialist Revolution – whilst today the Tories have rendered the Unions ‘weak’ and ‘divided’ by Trotskyism! For Liz Truss the usual right-wing ‘denial’ holds sway. The right-wing policies that navigated the UK down this damaging and dangerous economic and political path since 2010 will be ‘enhanced’ and ‘strengthened’ – as this is the command of the right-wing and far-right Tory pay-masters that lurk in the shadows!
The so-called Six Day War that broke-out on June 5, 1967 – was a massive land-grab exercise perfectly planned and executed by the Zionist Authorities of Israeli! In typical (and deceptive) Zionist style, this mass invasion of Arab territory has been presented as an ‘act of self-defence – falsely implying that the Arabs are responsible for their own plight and deserve everything that Israel has perpetuated against them! In reality, this shocking exercise in neo-imperialism saw the military defeat of Egypt, Syria and Jordan. This defeat led to the Israelis occupying East Jerusalem, the West Bank of the Jordan River, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights and only served to tighten the Zionist noose that was already around the necks of the Palestinians! On June 8, 1967, the Israeli Airforce deliberately attacked the USS Liberty – a lightly armed US Naval ship that was sailing in international waters north of the Sinai Peninsula. This planned Israeli attack upon a US Naval ship killed 34 US Naval Personnel and wounded another 171! The Israeli method of trying to provoke the US to get involved in a conflict the Zionists themselves had started failed yet again.
It is remarkable to consider that although the Red Army Cavalry were issued were ‘Carbines’ in 1941, this was not before massed men on horses had launched traditional Cavalry charges against the Nazi German Army as it moved into the USSR from June 22nd onwards, in 1941! Indeed, the 6th and 36th Divisions of Red Army Cavalry were literally ‘wiped-out’ as every man and horse was lost when they ‘charged’ at advancing Nazi Germany tanks in West Ukraine at the very beginning of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945)!
In general, the combination of today’s ‘unusual’ cavalry soldier with this type of horse is very far, unfortunately, from the image that is desirable or associated with a ‘traditional’ cavalryman. Meanwhile, a ‘pike’ (or ‘lance’) is good only in the hands of an excellent rider, sitting on an excellent and well-trodden horse! History sufficiently proves (through a number of examples) that in the absence of these two vital attributes – the pike is only a burden that rushes into battle without finding any effective use for itself!
