Vladimir Lenin (1870–1924 CE) overthrew Russian Czar Nicholas II (1868–1918 CE) and founded the Soviet Union, forever changing the course of Russian politics. But was he a hero who toppled an oppressive tyranny or a villain who replaced it with another? Alex Gendler puts this controversial figure on trial, exploring both sides of a nearly century-long debate.
