“The life of Europe and all mankind will be determined for a long time by the course of the imperialist war and its economic and political consequences,” wrote communist leader Leon Trotsky in May 1940. In face of this, he said, communist workers continue to “fulfill our basic task: to carry on constant, tireless preparation for the revolution—in the factories, mills, villages, barracks, at the front, and in the fleet.”
