Espionage Manual 30 - NKVD Soviet Espionage
How NKVD Spies Changed the World
134 pages, 10 chapters and 4 appendixes
The e-book, Espionage Manual #30 - NKVD Soviet Espionage, offers a lucid portrayal of
the Soviet KGB’s predecessor, the NKVD. Although the NKVD “monster-ocracy” was
simultaneously an intelligence agency, secret police, frontier gendarmie, concentration camp
guards corps, and huge military army group of sixty or more combat divisions, it was proficient
in all of its nefarious endeavors. NKVD espionage networks blanketed the world, as NKVD
Soviet espionage carried out widespread intelligence collections, assassinations and policy
influence operations. Although NKVD Soviet espionage was carried out by mostly terrified
and mediocre men, they were trained in their methodologies, disciplined and relentless. The
NKVD was perfect proof that the instrument of terror could control a nation even while being
terrified itself and simultaneously operate as one of the best spy agencies in the world. For
those ignoramuses who believe that police states, torture, and all the evil arts “don’t work,”
there is the evidence offered by the NKVD and its progenitors.
“The Director of the OSS, William J. Donovan, actively sought to cooperate with the communists by giving them
intelligence information without any agreed upon reciprocation during World War II. In the mid-forties “Wild Bill”
Donovan conceived an "OSS-NKVD mission exchange plan" which the FBI's J. Edgar Hoover attacked, in 1944, as "a
highly dangerous and undesirable procedure' for it would 'establish in the United States a unit of the Russian Secret
Service which has admittedly for its purpose the penetration into the official secrets of various government agencies'..."
Hoover further declared that the NKVD had already "...been engaged in attempting to obtain highly confidential
information concerning War Department secrets'..." The NKVD was the forerunner of the notorious KGB. (The KGB did
manage to penetrate all key US agencies and ultimately began a "very close working relationship" with the CIA during
the [first] Bush administration.)
President Roosevelt rejected the exchange plan and was met with an immediate challenge from the American
Ambassador to Moscow, Averill Harriman the State Department’s most influential Soviet mole. In an impassioned letter to
Roosevelt, Harriman praised his Soviet friends and insisted: "I cannot express too strongly my conviction that our
relations with the Soviet Government in other directions will be adversely affected if we now close the door on this
branch of the Soviet Government after they have shown cooperative spirit and good faith."
Soon, the OSS was busily engaged with a lop-sided exchange of intelligence documents with the NKVD. Many American
documents were exchanged in return for only a few Soviet documents.”
Excerpt from Espionage Manual #30 - NKVD Soviet Espionage
|other books about Intelligence
NKVD Soviet espionage worked, and it shook the world as it subverted every nation in Europe and elsewhere. The
communists were never defeated. They still rule. The fact that the NKVD was an organ of a successful and ferocious police
state had nothing to do with the ultimate transformation of that police state into an apparent mafiocracy. Those who would win
wars must be ruthless enough to fight them for the purpose of winning, that is what the victorious NKVD proved.
