VIII
MY BREAK WITH STALIN

the leading generals of the Red Army were bound for the firing-squad.
Early in March I had left my headquarters in The Hague on my own initiative to go back home and report to my superiors, but I was also driven by a consuming desire to find out at first-hand what was going on in the Soviet Union. As I expected to be gone but a short time, my wife and child remained in Holland.
On March 16 I landed by plane at Hclsingfors, Finland, and proceeded the same night by train to Leningrad. This had been in recent years my standard route to and from the Soviet Union. The reason for avoiding the direct route through Germany went back
to 1923- I was, as I have already described, one of a
number of Soviet officers engaged in organizing the skeleton of a Red Army in Germany. This got me into exciting difficulties with the police authorities of Berlin, and for two months in 1926 I stayed in hiding in our Soviet Embassy there. Although subsequently I did pass surreptitiously through Germany several times, it became particularly dangerous after the rise of Hitler in 1933- Moscow did not wish me to take any chances of falling into the hands of Hitler's Gestapo.
That is why I returned home in March 1937 through the Scandinavian countries. At that time, on account of the purge, the Ogpu was granting few visas for entry into the Soviet Union, and there was little traffic across its borders. The only other passengers on my train were three Americans, obviously travelling on diplomatic passports as their baggage was not examined. The party consisted of a couple and a blond fellow in his thirties, wearing a high black fur hat. He spoke Russian and was, to all appearances, a member of the United States Embassy in Moscow. There was quite a bit of conversation with the Customs
