On 21 August 1940, Leon Trotsky, the Marxist thinker and fighter, and co-leader of the Russian Revolution (along with Lenin), was murdered by one of Stalin’s agents.
The article ‘Trotsky’s Assassination’ originally appeared in the quarterly theoretical magazine of the Militant (now the Socialist Party – England and Wales section of the CWI), in 1980.
