His attack on the Right was, therefore, an aspect of his massive transformation of the Soviet economy. Collectivization Depriving the peasants of their land and requiring them to live and work in communes. It is uncertain when Stalin finally decided that the answer to the Soviet Union’s growth problem was collectivization and industrialization (see pages 31–37). The likelihood is that it was probably another piece of opportunism; having defeated the Left politically, he felt free to adopt their economic policies.

In 1927, on the tenth anniversary of the Bolshevik rising, he tried to rally support in a direct challenge to Stalin’s authority. He was again heavily outvoted. His complete failure led to Congress accepting Stalin’s proposal that Trotsky be expelled from the Party altogether. An internal exile order against him in 1927 was followed two years later by deportation from the USSR itself. That Trotsky was not executed at this point suggests that Stalin did not yet regard himself as being in full political control.

The purge of the armed forces A particularly significant development in the purges occurred in 1937 when the Soviet military came under threat. Stalin’s control of the Soviet Union would not have been complete if the armed services had continued as an independent force. It was essential that they be kept subservient. Stalin also 41 had a lingering fear that the army, which had been Trotsky’s creation (see page 23), might still have sympathy for their old leader. In May 1937, Vyshinksy, Stalin’s chief prosecutor, announced that ‘a gigantic conspiracy’ had been uncovered in the Red Army.
