WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

EARLY in the month of December 1936, while I was at my headquarters in The Hague, I accidentally came into possession of the key to a master conspiracy, which resulted six months later in the execution by Stalin of Marshal Tukhachevsky and nearly the entire high command of the Red Army.
There are conspiracies plotted by men lusting for power or vengeance, and there are conspiracies plotted by the course of events. Sometimes the paths of two such conspiracies cross and interlace. Then the historian finds himself confronted by tangled skeins which challenge his utmost powers. To this category belongs the mystery of the annihilation by Stalin of the flower of the Red Army as spies in the service of the German Government.
It is a mystery which continues to baffle the mind of the world. Everywhere still people ask these questions :
Why did Stalin behead the Red Army at a time when Hitler was generally believed to be feverishly preparing for war? Was there any connection between the Red Army purge and Stalin's efforts to come to an agreement with Germany? Was there really a conspiracy on the part of the Red Army command against Stalin?
It was on June 11, I937, that the Kremlin announced the sudden discovery of a conspiracy by the great General Tukhachevsky and eight of the high
