VII
WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

Francisco-was asked if there was any truth in Stalin's charges of espionage against the Red Army generals. My agent's report reproduced Wiedemann's boastful reply :
" We hadn't nine spies in the Red Army, but many more. The Ogpu is still far from on the trail of all our men in Russia."
I knew only too well the character of such talk. So would any Military Intelligence officer of any nation. Itwasdesigned for wide circulation, with a view toundermining the morale of the enemy. In Military Intelligence parlance it is known as "disinformation."
During the World War, the German General Staff even had a Bureau known as the "Disinformation Service." Here experts worked out seemingly plausible secret military plans and orders, which were then "planted" as authentic documents in the enemy's hands. Sometimes even war prisoners would be found in possession of secret plans so cleverly concocted by the Bureau of Disinformation as to convince the captors that they were inside plans.
Spiegelglass, a veteran of the Cheka and its successor the Ogpu, was perfectly familiar with the practice. He brushed aside the intimation that there were other Nazi spies in the Red Army.
" I'm telling you," he said, "there's nothing more to it. We cleared it all up before proceeding against Tukhachevsky and Gamarnik. We have information from Germany too-from inside sources. Ours doesn't come from salon conversations, but from within the Gestapo itself."
He pulled a paper out of his pocket to show me. It was a report from one of his operatives which confirmed his arguments in convincing style.
" You don't regard such stuff as evidence, do you?" I said.
