VII
WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

"I was waiting for my passport," I said.
" Well, here it is," he said. "Your train leaves at ten o'clock."
On my last day in Moscow the state of alarm reached an unbearable pitch. Something like a panic seized the entire corps of officers of the Red Army. Hourly reports came in of fresh arrests.
I went directly to Mikhail Frinovsky, Vice-Commissar of the Ogpu, who, together with Yezhov, was conducting the great purge for Stalin.
" Tell me, what's going on? What's going on in the country?" I demanded of Frinovsky. "How can I leave in these circumstances? How can I do my work without knowing what it's all about? What shall I say to my comrades abroad?"
" It's a conspiracy!" replied Frinovsky. "We've just uncovered a gigantic conspiracy in the Army, such a conspiracy as history has never known. And we've just now learned of a plot to kill Nikolai Ivanovitch (Yezhov) himself! But we've got them all. We've got everything under control."
Frinovsky did not volunteer any evidence of the gigantic conspiracy so suddenly discovered by the Ogpu. But I learned in the corridors of the Lubianka, where I bumped into Furmanov, the chief of the counter-espionage section operating among White Russians abroad.
" Say, those were a couple of first-rate men you sent us," he said.
" What men?" I asked.
" The 'German officers,' you know!" and he began jokingly to reproach me for being so reluctant to assign my agents for his work.
The matter had completely slipped my mind, and I asked Furmanov how he happened to know about it.
" Why, that was our case," Furmanov boasted.
