U.S.S.R. / C.C.C.P.
Spoiler:
The Soviet Union of Socialist Republics, a socialist state that dominated most of Eurasia in 1922 to 1991. The Soviets played major competing roles against America during this time, including World War II and the following Cold War, the nuclear arms race, and the race to the moon, that culminated into the fear of the Eastern communist bloc. Nowadays, it is called the Russian Federation.
D.P.R.K.
Spoiler:
Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or North Korea, is a very secluded Juche country ruled by an oppressive dynasty. It is often confused with being communist.

Key Figures

Karl Marx
Spoiler:
Karl Marx was a German revolutionary socialist, and the father of communist thought. He recorded his ideas into published works that serve as the foundation for any socialist political movement, such as the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital, along with Friedrich Engels.
Friedrich Engels
Spoiler:
Friedrich Engels was a German social scientist and political theorist who helped father Marxist theory by editing Marx post-humous works, such as Theories of Surplus Value and Das Kapital Volume IV.
Fidel Castro
Spoiler:
Fidel Castro was a Cuban revolutionary who helped Che Guevara overthrow the U.S.-allied Fulgencio Batista government during the Cuban Revolution, and then led Communist Cuba to a prominent world role during the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Cold War. The target of many C.I.A. assassination attempts and American imperialist aggression, Fidel Castro is loved and hated by many. Regardless, he is the only one, true communist politician of our world.
Che Guevara
Spoiler:
Che Guevara was an Argentine guerrilla soldier and revolutionary who led the overthrow of the Fulgencio Batista government and the liberation of Cuba. Previously, he traveled abroad in the U.S.A. as a medical student, and witnessed first-hand the poverty of Latin America. Afterwards, he attempted to liberate the Congo and Bolivia, but was captured by C.I.A.-armed Bolivian forces and murdered.
Vladimir Lenin
Spoiler:
Vladimir Lenin was a Russian revolutionary who led the October Revolution of 1917 that eventually created the U.S.S.R. He was the father of the Marxist-Leninist school of communist thought, adapted by many world leaders (such as Fidel Castro). Along with Leon Trotsky, he opposed the fascist politician Joseph Stalin, who would eventually succeed Lenin for power and control of the Union, and besmirch the theory of communism forever.
Leon Trotsky
Spoiler:
Leon Trotsky, leader and founder of the Red Army, and was at the fore-front of the opposition against the corrupt politics of the fascist leader, Joseph Stalin, which led to him being usurped from power and exiled from the U.S.S.R. While living in Mexico, he was assassinated by a Soviet agent under command of Stalin. The differences in Trotskyist theory have led to the creation of a narrow application of Marxism called Trotskyism.

Excellent job, comrade, but this glossary requires extensive work, if we wish to make it complete... which I think we should do. We should collaborate similar to how we collaborated on the personal letter.

I feel I'd have to disgaree with the definition used for guerrilla, considering the general usage of the term, it's traditional origin, and even the word's meaning.

I was going to suggest changing this term to Guerrilla War, or Guerrilla War Theory. I'm working on a very large overhaul of this glossary with terms that may be added.
