The Red Flag refers to the red flag of communism that swept through Russia during the years following World War I (1917-1940). This introduction touches upon the tumultuous October Revolution, Stalin's rise to power, the hope that communism brought many, and the horrors it brought others. Eyewitness quotes are used to illustrate the experience of communist workers and activists.
