of antagonistic political parties. The small, hard, disciplined group of Communists, now commanded by the Ogpu, supported Caballero's Government but did not control it. It was the more important for Moscow to seize control of the International Brigade.
The nucleus of this Brigade was the 500 to 600 foreign refugee Communists sent from Russia. Not a single Russian was among them. Later, when the Brigade swelled to nearly 15,000 fighters, no Russian was permitted to join its ranks. An impenetrable wall was deliberately erected between this force and the units of the Red Army detailed for service in Spain.
In every foreign country, including Great Britain the recruiting agencies of the International Brigade were the local Communist Parties and their auxiliaries. Some independent groups of Socialists and other radicals attempted to organize columns. But the overwhelming majority of recruits were enlisted by Communists and drawn from the spreading network of "fellow travellers," who are often entirely unaware of the remote control exercised over them by communists.
When a volunteer offered himself he was directed to a secret enlistment bureau. Here he filled out a questionnaire and was told to await notification. Behind the scenes the Ogpu investigated his political record ; if it seemed acceptable, he was called back and questioned by an Ogpu agent, who was rarely a Russian and sometimes not even officially a member of the Communist Party, but was always reliable and absolutely devoted to his Communist and Ogpu chiefs. After this political investigation, which-especially in the Anglo-Saxon countries-appeared to be quite casual and informal, the recruit was directed for physical examination to an equally reliable physician with solid sympathy for the Communist cause.
