You should do an introduction giving the alternative opinion first, then your own opinion. For the first paragraphs, I would suggest using one source and your own knowledge to support the alternative argument, e.g. some people think the great terror did strengthen the Soviet Union because blah blah. This is shown in source blah blah because blah. Then use the remaining two sources and own knowledge that support your own view, e.g. However, myself and many historians think it didn't because blah blah blah; this is supported by source blah. Furthermore, source blah shows blah, which shows that the great terror didn't strengthen the Soviet Union. In your conclusion, summarise the counter argument and your argument, with a direct reference to your opinion. Always put the weaker (alternative) argument first and the stronger (your own) opinion last.
