Brezhnev becomes Soviet leader
In 1964 Leonid Brezhnev organises a coup to oust Khrushchev from the leadership of the Soviet Union. A biography of Brezhnev is given. Also I explain how in 1965, Brezhnev made his position as Soviet leader stronger, he remained leader until his death in 1982. While it seemed that the Soviet Union appeared strong in fact internal weakness was undermining it and within a few years of his death the Soviet Union fall apart.
