ctivised. As a result, by the end of the First Year’ Plan half the urban labour force had been made up of peasants. Therefore, Stalin’s policy may have been the only viable option to achieve his objectives despite how horrendous they have been considered. His methods were brutal and resulted in the breakdown of traditional living in the countryside but in doing so they overcame a far greater problem; the backwards system of agriculture which tied so many to the land yet yielded so low since the rule of the Tsar. The upheaval of the peasants forced them to migrate into the cities and take up positions in factories. However, this ultimately enabled one of the largest growths in heavy industrial output; levels of growth not seen since the years of the western industrial revolution. This enabled the achievement of Stalin’s remaining objectives; the development of an arms industry that prepared the USSR for war, and to economically catch up with the western imperialist powers. Therefore, the achievement of collectivisation cannot be understated since it enabled the Five-Year Plans to become a success necessitating the strong war effort of the USSR and these achievements could stand as testament for the methods. The ultimate achievement of Stalin’s industrial economic policies was the preparation of the USSR for World War II, and in doing so can be used as a firm justification for all methods however atrocious. It has been suggested by Terry Fiehn that “Stalin had succeeded in industrialising the USSR in order to have a basis for a powerful arms industry.” This interpretation is given its strongest credibility by the success of the Five-Year Plans which is depicted in Appendix A. Clearly, the interpretation is corroborated by the statistics since it indicates a remarkable increase in the production of heavy industry. In just over 12 years coal production quintupled, steel grew by six times, oil doubled, and electricity generation quintupled. These four products provided the essential foundations for the military economy, the production of arms, munitions and vehicles, that enabled the USSR to successfully survive four years of German occupation during World War II. Fiehn’s interpretation is given even greater credibility when considering that the USSR eventually had enough resources to launch operation Uranus; the counter-offensive against the Nazis, and these resources were enough to drive the German army out of Soviet territory. Fiehn is proven correct since the USSR’s military economy grew substantial enough that it enabled the Soviet invasion and defeat of Germany in 1945. Therefore, the argument that the achievements justify the methods used is definitely testified by Fiehn’s interpretation, since industrialisation achieved a developed arms industry which enabled the prevention of the German conquest and an Allied victory, which can b>GET ANSWER
