Red Famine: Anne Applebaum on Why She Wrote Her Russian Trilogy

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Anne Applebaum has been grappling with the complex questions of Soviet history since she published the first book in her Eastern European trilogy, Gulag in 2003. Having chronicled the rise of Communist regimes of Eastern Europe in The Iron Curtain, her latest volume, Red Famine, turns her attention to Stalin’s bloody war on Ukraine. In an exclusive article for Waterstones, as she looks back on a quarter century of research, she considers why these stories are more relevant now than ever.
