The Red Napoleon (1929) is a novel by Floyd Gibbons predicting a Soviet conquest of Europe and invasion of America. The novel contains strong racial overtones such as expressed fear of the yellow peril. However, the characters expressing these views are exposed in the text as being bigoted and ill-informed.
The Red Napoleon was published in 1929 and projects the next few years. In it, Joseph Stalin is killed by an assassin in 1932. A Red Army leader takes over and starts a massive military buildup. In 1933 the Red Army invades Poland."
