The Nation Killers
by Robert Conquest
Conquest did a lot of research into the purges of 1943-4 when Stalin deported natives of the North Caucasus to Siberia and Central Asia. The Chechens, Ingush, Balkars and Karachais were forced out of their homeland for allegedly collaborating with the Germans in the Second World War. Though some did side with the Nazis, they were mainly opposed to the Soviet regime, which had ill-treated them for decades.
