Another View of Stalin
In 1994, Martens published Another View of Stalin (Un autre regard sur Staline), a history of the Soviet Union under Stalin that challenges in particular the historically accepted view of collectivisation in the USSR and the Great Purge. He explained his motivation for writing the book in the introduction:
Defending Stalin's work, essentially defending Marxism-Leninism, is an important, urgent task in preparing ourselves for class struggle under the New World Order.
Martens writes primarily in French; however, his books, especially Another View of Stalin, have been translated into Dutch, English, and numerous other languages. In Another View of Stalin, Martens regards as the main factor behind the Ukrainian famine (Holodomor) to be bad conditions and alleged class enemy. With regard to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's novel Gulag Archipelago, Martens stated:
This man became the official voice for the five per cent of Tsarists, bourgeois, speculators, kulaks, pimps, maffiosi and Vlasovites, all justifiably repressed by the socialist state.
