With the 1929 economic collapse, the world capitalist system
was in shambles. The time was ripe for another world war.
It would soon break out. But where? And to what extent? Who would
fight whom? These questions stood without answers for some time.
Even after the `official' beginning, in 1940, the answers to
these questions were still not clear.
These unanswered questions allow one to better understand Stalin's
foreign policy during the thirties.
