Voroshilovsky Shooter

As Engels had already made clear with his insights into military matters, and as Lenin and the Bolsheviks realised with a shock after the Potemkin incident (which drew them to Engels’s material), and as Mao was fully aware with his efforts to develop a revolutionary army, a communist revolution needs a well-trained Red Army. All of this is embodied in Alexander Sorokin’s ‘Voroshilovsky Shooter’, from the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, made during the immensely creative 1930s in the Soviet Union (ht cp).
