"Warsaw melody" for Moscow and Prague: documents from personal archive I.V. Stalin, the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation, the II Division of the General Staff of the Polish Army, and others (1933-1939)
The first part of the book is made up of documents of Stalin’s so-called ‘personal archives’ – reports of Soviet intelligence revealing the secret intentions of Germany, Poland and Japan to take aggressive measures against the USSR roughly in the second half of 1935. The second and third parts of the book illustrate the secret motives of the ‘small war’ i.e. the mechanism allowing the then political authorities of Poland to form a reason for war with neighbouring countries including the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia. The appendix contains documents revealing the results of this policy including for representatives of the Polish nation, displaced from western borders to the depths of the USSR in the mid 1930s. The book is a result of the so-called ‘1990s archive revolution’ when after the fall of the Soviet Union historians were given access to some of the previously closed archives with one of them being the MIA Special Archive of the USSR which contained, amongst others, the documents of II Division of the Polish Army’s Main Headquarters (espionage and counterespionage) of 1930s.
This book will be of interest
to state actors, politicians, diplomats and can be used as a chrestomathy by
university students in their final years.
