|This anti-Bolshevik propaganda poster, dated to
the Russian Civil War (1919), shows Leon
Trotsky (born Lev Davidovich Bronstein) as a devil. Elements of
the imagery reveal anti-Semitism (a popular anti-communist tactic
was to overplay the role of Jews in the Russian Bolshevik Revolution).
Trotsky is being aided by Chinese soldiers, many of whom fought
alongside the Bolsheviks (Reds) in the Russian Civil War. The
White Army's message reads "Peace and Freedom in Sovdepiya."
