STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

the Soviet Union in the Far East became alarming. Japanese forces took Peiping, bombarded Shanghai, advanced on Nanking. The Government of Chiang Kai-Shek made peace with Moscow and solicited Soviet aid.
Simultaneously, the Fascist powers become more and more aggressive in the West. Italy and Germany intervened openly on Franco's side. The military situation of the Spanish republic grew increasingly difficult. If Stalin were to capitalize on his achievement in Spain, lie would have to give her now the full measure of help needed to defeat I'rarrco and his allies. But more than ever, he was loath to risk a major war. His slogan, "Stay out of range of the artillery fire!" became more insistent after Japan's invasion of China and threat to the Siberian frontier.
The role of Stalin in Spain was drawing to an ignominious close. Stalin had intervened there in the hope that he might, with the stepping-stone of a Spanish dependency, build a road from Moscow to London and Paris, and so, ultimately, to Germany. His manoeuvre was unsuccessful. He lacked real audacity. He played his game boldly against the independence of the Spanish people, but feebly against Franco. He succeeded in murderous intrigue, but failed in waging war. Paris and London adopted a more friendly attitude towards Franco. Gradually, during 1938, Stalin withdrew his hand from Spain.
All he got out of the adventure was a pile of Spanish gold.
