STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

without power in the Soviet machine. In November 1936 this Russian general was named supreme commander of the Spanish Government forces in the northern sector of the Madrid front.
On one of the first days of November I took off from Marseilles by plane for Barcelona. A waiting car whisked me to a down-town hotel which served in Barcelona as Soviet headquarters. No outside guests were permitted to stay there. Here I met Stashevsky, our trade envoy, and the members of his staff. Here lived and worked our military intelligence staff in Catalonia, under the supervision of General Akulov.
I had come to Barcelona to put my agents in Franco's territory under the orders of staff officers in charge of the military operations which General Berzin was secretly directing. I thought that the information I was receiving from the rebel zones would be more useful in Madrid and Barcelona than in Moscow.
General Akulov had organized our secret intelligence service in the enemy's camp most efficiently. Our radio operatives there were working without interruption, and daily transmitted vital information by means of portable radio sets.
Naturally, my first questions were about the prospect of military victory. The reply was, in effect: "Things are in a frightful mess here. Our only comfort is that they are in a worse mess over there."
General Berzin was working indefatigably to shape an army out of undisciplined and unco-ordinated armed detachments. He was pressing Caballero for conscription.
Berzin had assembled a group of Russian staff officers, and was making them the backbone of the Loyalist command. He took a leading part in organizing
