On War & Society #23: Stalin’s Gulag with Wilson Bell

Sometimes we forget that the field of war and society encompasses so much more than Canada. Many of the guests we’ve had on our show study the history of war and society in Canada, but in this episode, Wilson Bell speaks about the Soviet Gulag system during the Second World War and his new book, Stalin’s Gulag at War.

Wilson Bell is an associate professor of history at Thompson Rivers University. He is the author of numerous articles on the Gulag, and his first book, Stalin’s Gulag at War, was published in 2018 with the University of Toronto Press.
