VII
WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

Sloutski evidently caught the train of my thought, for he said emphatically: "This time it's the real thing. It will be only a matter of three or four months before we come to terms with Hitler. You don't have to stop everything, but don't push your work. There's nothing for us in this rotting corpse of France here, with her Front Populaire ! Put some of your men in Germany on ice. Save them. Transfer them to other countries. Put them in training. But get ready for a complete change of policy." And to dispel any possible doubts, he added significantly: "This is now the course of the Politbureau."
The Politbureau had by this time become a synonym for Stalin. Everyone in Russia knows that a decision of the Politbureau is as final as a general's order on the battlefield.
" Matters have gone so far," Sloutski continued, "that I can give you Stalin's own view in his own words. He recently said to Yezhov :` In the immediate future we shall consummate an agreement with Germany.'"
There was no more to be said on that subject. After a moment of silence, I took up Sloutski's unusual request for two of my men from Germany.
" What the devil are you up to?" I asked. "Don't you people realize what you're doing?"
" Of course we do," he said. "But this is no routine affair. It involves a case of such colossal importance that I have had to drop all my other work and come here to put it through."
My agents, then, were not to'be- assigned to Spain as I had assumed. Evidently they were needed for some desperate work in France. Still I continued to protest against turning them over to the Ogpu, and Sloutski finally said:
" If you must have it, the order is from Yezhov
