This chapter examines the consolidation of Stalin's dictatorship. It considers changes in the fundamental institutions of power during the final weeks before the war with Germany, which established precedents that greatly influenced the model of power which took shape after the war. The discussions cover repression within the Politburo; Stalin's old and new comrades-in-arms; and the breakdown of the old decision-making system and the creation of a new one.

Keywords:   Stalin, Politburo, Germany, political power, repression
