VII
WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

I did, however, send to Germany for two suitable agents.
Two days later I left for Paris, where I put up at the Palace Hotel. Through my local secretary, I arranged to meet Sloutski at the Cafe Viel on the Boulevard des Capucines. We proceeded to a Persian restaurant near the Place de l'Opera. On the way, I asked him for the latest news about our general policy.
" We have set our course towards an early understanding with Hitler," said Sloutski, "and have started negotiations. They are progressing favourably."
" In spite of everything in Spain!" I exclaimed. For although the persistence of Stalin's idea of an accord with Germany did not surprise me, I thought that Spanish events had pushed it far into the background.
When we sat down at the table, Sloutski opened the conversation by reporting to me an appreciation of my services which had been expressed by Yezhov. As Commissar for Internal' Affairs-official title for the head of the Ogpu-Yezhov spoke with the voice of Stalin himself, and I was personally gratified.
" What you have done is fine," Sloutski went on. "But from now on you'll have to throttle down your operations in Germany."
" You don't mean that things have already gone so far as that!" I exclaimed.
" I certainly do," he said.
" Do you mean that you have instructions for me to stop all work in Germany?"
I said this regretfully for I foresaw another reversal in policy later on, which would find my organization disrupted just when its help was most needed. Such things had happened before.
