I don't think Reagan did it single-handedly. He had a lot of help from Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul II among other allies and supporters, but he was a key leader of the West when the West broke the Soviets.
However the overriding factor in the USSR's collapse was their own policies and actions.
