comment Was coat of arms of Afghanistan of 1928 influenced by Soviet symbols?
The star was red, independently of background, also the wreath was made of wheat while the previous wreath was of unidentified plant (laurel?), also they added a strip with an inscription. Your answer is just a guess.

comment How much of the success of the Soviet forces in WWII can be attributed to the modernization efforts enacted by the Soviet/Bolshevik leadership?
@Lennart Regebro just the opposite. The modernization was the cause of the revolution, without it revolution would be impossible. This is because the driving force behind revolution were industrial workers.

comment Did Edward VIII's abdication follow constitutional procedures?
I do not know, who put here the word "constitutional". It was not it my question and I think it is stupid to ask about constitutionality in UK (of course his abdication was legal, and UK has no constitution).
