VII
WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

I knew that Furmanov handled for the Ogpu foreign anti-Soviet organizations like the Federation of Czarist Army Veterans, a world-wide body headed by General Miller in Paris. His words meant to me that my two men had been commandeered for an undertaking connected with this White Russian group in France. I recalled Sloutski's remark that the matter was of colossal importance. Furmanov had given me a final clue to the real conspiracy behind the Red Army purge. But I did not realize it then.
I left Moscow in the evening of May 22. It was like leaving a city in the midst of a series of earthquakes. Marshal Tukhachevsky had been arrested. Ogpu circles were already buzzing with the rumour that Marshal Gamarnik had been also arrested, although Pravda announced that he had been elected to the Moscow Committee of the Communist Party, an important honour bestowed only with the approval of Stalin himself. I was soon to understand the meaning of these seemingly contradictory reports. Stalin had seized Gamarnik and at the same time was offering him an eleventh-hour reprieve on condition that he would permit his name to be used in destroying Tukhachevsky. Gamarnik had rejected the offer.
By the end of the month I was back in The Hague. An official bulletin from the Soviet capital announced to the world that Vice-Commissar of War Gamarnik had committed suicide while under investigation. I learned afterwards that Gamarnik did not commit suicide, but was slain in prison by Stalin's men.
On June 11, Moscow first published the news of the arrest of Tukhachevsky and seven other top-rank generals as Nazi spies and fellow-conspirators of the dead Gamarnik. On June I z came the announcement
