VII
WHY STALIN SHOT HIS GENERALS

to take me to a rendezvous with two German officers, one a military attachc in a neighbouring country, Strohman, a colonel, the other, Herr Werner, who is attached to the local German Embassy. Both these men speak Russian well. The meeting has been arranged at the initiative of Skobline. It is possible that this is a trap, and that is why I am leaving you this note.
I was thunderstruck by the reference in Miller's note to the "two German officers." So this was the "colossal" job for which Sloutski had commandeered two of my best agents as far back as December, 1936. This was the "case" which Furmanov, Ogpu specialist on White Russian counter-espionage, had in mind when he joked with me in Moscow of my "German officers."
General Skobline was the right-hand man of General Miller in the White Russian military organization. The wife of Skobline was the famous Russian folk-singer, Nadine Plevitzkaia. Miller's colleagues repaired that night to the hotel where Skobline and his wife lived. Skobline at first denied knowing anything about Miller's luncheon appointment, claiming an alibi for himself. When confronted by Miller's note and threatened with a trip to the police headquarters Skobline took advantage of a momentary lapse of vigilance, slipped out and dashed away in a waiting car.
No trace was ever found of Miller. Skobline, too, vanished into thin air. His wife, Plevitzkaia, was arrested as an accessory to the crime. Papers found in their apartment established beyond doubt that Skobline had been an agent of the Ogpu. Plevitzkaia remained in gaol pending an investigation until her trial in Paris in December, 1938- She was charged with being a Soviet spy, and received a sentence of twenty years' imprisonment, an unusually severe verdict for a French Court to pass upon a woman.
