VII
WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

lieutenants knew anything about it. The Commissariat of Foreign Affairs, the Council of People's Commissars-the Soviet Cabinet-and the Central Executive Committee, headed by President Kalinin, had no part in it whatever. Since Stalin was executing his old Bolshevik comrades as Nazi spies at the same time that he was himself conducting these secret negotiations with Hitler, they obviously could not be made widely known.
It was, of course, no secret in any high Soviet circle that Stalin had long striven for an understanding with Hitler. Almost three years had passed since the night of the blood purge in Germany which had convinced him-even while it was going on-that the Nazi regime was firmly established, and that he must come to terms with this powerful dictator.
Now in April 1937, on receiving Kandelaki's report, Stalin felt sure that the deal with Hitler would go through. He need no longer fear an attack from Germany. The road was clear for the purge of the Red Army.
By the end of April it became an open secret that Marshal Tukhachevsky, Vice-Commissar of War Gamarnik, and a number of other high ranking generals were caught in the rapidly tightening net woven by Stalin's special agents. These leaders were still at liberty, but they were marked men. They were shunned at social affairs. It was considered dangerous to be seen speaking to them. They walked alone. Silence surrounded them.
The last time I saw my old chief, Marshal Tukhachevsky, was on May 1, 1937, at the celebration on Red Square. This May Day celebration is one of the rare occasions when Stalin appears in public. The precautions taken by the Ogpu for the celebrations of 1937 exceeded anything in the history of our secret police.
