In GCSE History students will look at Russia in the first half of the 20th Century. One aspect studied is the collectivisation of agriculture in Russia under Stalin's rule.
Stalin decided that he would have to forcibly nationalise agriculture and food production in Russia, in order to feed the huge population, and to carry out Marx's ideas on state control and social equality. This process became one of Stalin's main achievements - the collectivisation of his country's agriculture.
