Nazi Germany

Nazi Germany is the name given to the country of Germany while it was controlled by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party before and during World War II. It is widely regarded as history’s most horrific fascist regime. Snyder draws extensively on examples from Nazi Germany to demonstrate that those events were not unique to Germany or their time period and could easily occur again.

Soviet Union

The Soviet Union was the predecessor to modern Russia and existed throughout most of the twentieth century. For decades, it was led by Joseph Stalin, a repressive tyrant.
