The Red Hotel By Alan Philps AudioBook summary

In 1941, Lenin’s body was moved from his tomb on Red Square and taken to Siberia. By 1945, a victorious Stalin had turned a poor country into a victorious superpower. Over the course of those four years, Stalin, at Churchill’s insistence, accepted an Anglo-American press corps in Moscow to cover the Eastern Front. Stalin imposed the most draconian controls-unbending censorship, no visits to the battlefront, and a ban on contact with ordinary citizens.

The Red Hotel explores this gilded cage of the Metropol Hotel. On the surface, this regime served Stalin well: his plans to control Eastern Europe as a Sovietized “outer empire” were never reported and the most outrageous Soviet lies went unchallenged.

But beneath the surface, the Metropol was roiling with intrigue. Using British archives and Soviet sources, the unique role of the women of the Metropol, both as consummate propagandists and secret dissenters, is told for the first time.
