 The Soviet Famines of 1921 and 1932-3   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The famine of 1921 began with a drought that caused massive crop failures, including total crop failure on about 20 percent of Soviet farmland (1).
The massive famine which struck the Soviet Union in 1932-33 was, like the 1921 famine, caused by government actions but unlike that famine appears to have been at least partially intentional as part of Stalin's efforts to further his political goals.
Following the disastrous famine of 1921 and similar failures of central planning, the New Economic Policy liberalized agricultural policy in the Soviet Union and the country experienced a recovery.

In 1921 the events become more than just dates and places and the people involved more than just names.
By the time the reader finishes these two novels (1916 and 1921) they are certain to have a better understanding of today's Irish "Troubles" -- although understanding doesn't mean condoning the violence.
Llywelyn does an quality job of making history come alive but there were several errors that almost ruined the book for me. In the list of characters she writes that the Wolfe Tone the Irish revolutionary died in 1828 when in fact he slit his throat in 1798 after the failed uprising.
