Three years later in 1917 the Bolsheviks seized power in Russia, founding the Soviet Union, with Lenin as their first leader. Over these years Stalin moved up the party ladder. Stalin’s rise was then fortified in 1922 by becoming the secretary general of the central committee of the communist party, a position which allowed him to appoint his personal allies to government jobs and create a base of political support. Following Lenin’s death in 1924 Stalin slithered past his political foes, winning the power struggle within the Communist party to become the dictator of the Soviet
Since there is no proof or evidence, their heroic reputation was most likely a facade (Jesse James Biography, Biography.com). His real ambition of riches was driven by politics (Stiles, prologue).

It has been 60 years since the death of Russia’s dictator however Stalin, who destroyed many generations of Russians is being revered as a hero in today’s Russia, why is that?

In my opinion I think that Woodrow Wilson did the most to define American foreign policy in the twentieth century. In the 20th century the United States were involved in two world wars and along with its allies defeated its enemies and also increasing its international reputation. President Woodrow Wilson made the Fourteen Points which were developed from his idealistic Wilsonianism program of spreading democracy and fighting militarism so as to end wars. The Fourteen Points were the basis of the German Armistice and the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. The USA never joined the League of Nations, which was established from Wilson Fourteen points.

At the age of forty-two, Theodore Roosevelt became the youngest president in American’s history. In September 1901, President William McKinley was murdered in Buffalo, New York by a deranged anarchist, which led Vice President Roosevelt to take the oath of office. Bringing new excitement and power to the office, Theodore Roosevelt led Congress and the public towards strong foreign policy and progressive reforms. Roosevelt felt like he would take any action, as president, possible as long as it was not forbidden by the laws of the Constitution. “Roosevelt believed the president should lead, boldly” (page 592).
A wily, peasant-born leader, Villa joined with Emiliano Zapata to keep the spirit of rebellion alive in Mexico and harass the Carranza government. A year later, though, Wilson decided Carranza had made enough steps towards democratic reform to merit official American support, and the president abandoned Villa. Outraged, Villa turned against the United States. In January 1916, he kidnapped 18 Americans from a Mexican train and slaughtered them. A few weeks later, on this day in 1916, Villa led an army of about 1,500 guerillas across the border to stage a brutal raid against the small American town of Columbus, New Mexico.
