For my History EE I've narrowed it down to Stalin's rise to power, and so i've found have some key points to his rise to power.
My question: History EE- Stalin's rise to Power.
1) His position (general secretariat)
2) failure of his enemies to oppose (Trotsky, Kamanev and Zinoviev, Bukharin)
3) His personality/ political cunningness (like how he's not afraid to kill others to get to the top etc.. show trials etc...) [ i dont know whether i should split this into 2 things, like one would be his personality and the other his political cunning.)
4) most definitively his cult of personality (it was the peak of his power so i'd probably write up till now.)
I want to know if you guys have any more ideas about this, whether i should narrow down my question more? maybe add the time period from when to when? like 1924 to about 1940's which would be his CoP (cult of personality).
any historiography you guys know, historians, books? etc.. please help me out
