I became Stalin chapter 39
The catastrophe at Dunkirk destroyed the British Army both qualitatively and quantitatively. However, it wasn’t just that. The British Army General Staff hastily conducted a large-scale conscription from across the country to rebuild the army from the leftover debris.
And among them, there were quite a lot of ‘unverified’ people, to borrow the expression of the superior.
“We are doing our best, Your Excellency. If only you could give us a little more time and manpower…”
The MI5 director rubbed his hands together. The ministers watched as he whispered humbly with a look of dissatisfaction.
Stalin openly recites things like Alan Turing and Bletchley Park, as if he knew even the best British secrets. The British intelligence department was turned upside down as to whether Soviet spies had infiltrated there, and now they are keen to find out spies who have infiltrated the military and government.
The ‘impurities’, or spies, within the UK could be divided into three main types.
First of all, those with the largest number were pro-Germans. Ex-fascist ex-fascists who admire Germany’s remarkable victory and think they can work with them to rip the world apart.
British intelligence managed to apprehend only seven of the dozens of Nazi German spies believed to be undercover. Those who remain… succeeded in linking with these pro-German point organizations in the military. I couldn’t be sure of anything though.
“But it’s impossible to capture all of these organizations.”
“It’s… so deeply intertwined with the existing clubs…”
In fact, these pro-German point organizations were not worthy of being called organizations at all. The unique British community culture, or ‘club’ culture, contributed to the creation of various private organizations within the military.
For example, small organizations such as the Royal Scottish Horse Regiment Veterans’ Club, Manchester Fusilier’s Officers’ Club, and the 3372th Artillery NCOs’ associations were widely spread throughout the British Army, and the intelligence service could not track, manage, or constrain them. .
They were also grassroots organizations supporting Churchill’s Conservative government in the first place, so Churchill couldn’t even dig up these groups with his own hands.
And the pro-Germans weren’t the only ones in this organization. Only one pro-reader came into the club and asked for information that attendees carelessly leaked, and gave it to his superiors. his mouth! mouth! Churchill slammed the table.
“Why can’t you catch these damn traitor bastards!”
Churchill was still screaming and screaming.
Attlee was so full that she couldn’t chew on the words she wanted to say inside.
‘Honestly, didn’t you roll it all up?’
From France, from Dunkirk, from the Atlantic Ocean, from Norway to Gibraltar and Alexandria! Churchill’s strategic choices were riddled with miscalculations, even if he didn’t bring up old things like Gallipoli.
So how can the people not be disappointed? It would make them think that it would be better to negotiate with Germany, the ‘brother country’. But Attlee had both the wisdom to know that it would not be of much benefit to England to say it, and the patience to put up with it.
He rested his forehead on his forehead and took a deep breath, and the head of the intelligence service was only sulking.
“To catch them all, I don’t know where the traitors come from, and where just the careless idiots. And the traitors on the other side…”
Churchill slammed the desk once more.
“I do know who the careless nerd is! There’s one in front of me?”
‘And there are two people in front of me.’
Attlee sighed inwardly. After trying to calm Churchill down, the counterintelligence director started reporting again.
“The current situation… Columns 5, 6 and 7 are not enough to describe.”
Some cabinet ministers sighed and patted their foreheads or rubbed the back of their necks like Attlee. Some even rubbed their temples. Churchill was truly amazed at the color change day by day. It’s red, it’s dark, it’s hazy, it’s very different?
“First of all, the most dangerous are the pro-German traitors I’ve talked about… Irish rebel nationalists and communists are also hiding in the military. They are sometimes hostile, but they share a mutual anti-state ideology, so they cooperate and exchange information. I do.”
Now, all the ministers have died with a dark face. As they have already confirmed the intelligence of the Soviet Union, if they cooperated with other organizations, there could be no secrets in Britain.
“The Irish rebels are not a homogeneous group, but an organization with different interests and ideologies. Some are very pro-Germany and want to work with the Nazis to seek unification and independence for Ireland, while the New Payne gangs are not affiliated with the Soviet Union. They often collaborate. The extremists within the self-governing government are mostly purely reflective.”
“They… how can’t we use them?”
Minister of Foreign Affairs Eden sighed deeply and asked the chief of counterintelligence. Cooperating with the spies hiding inside the military—although it’s close to being used—have to start thinking about it. This country is running really well too!
“It’s difficult. Since the pro-German group is an ideological type, it is difficult to subdue, persuade, or convert, and if you grasp it, you can arrest it or use it as a double spy who leaks disinformation. On the premise that the real information they ask is of no value.
Among the Irish rebels, pro-Soviet forces or Soviet spies are not leaking information to the immediate ‘enemy’, and the intelligence department is not aware of the reality.”
And the third, Soviet spies, who couldn’t even speak. They also had a wide range of intelligence services. Since the spies are not fools, those with a ‘red’ history have been excluded from military or counter-espionage missions as much as possible.
Nevertheless, if the Soviet intelligence were to the point where even scientists like Bletchley Park and Alan Turing knew every detail…
In fact, even the Counterintelligence Bureau was well aware of the Marxist installations in prestigious universities such as Oxford and Cambridge. And due to the shortage of talented people due to the war, they enlisted in large numbers or started working for the country – leave it to your imagination – and information began leaking into the Soviet Union.
“However, there are a few agencies that have confirmed the existence of Soviet spies. MI5, MI6, Cryptographic Department Bletchley Park, Foreign Ministry Anti-French Mission Division…”
Huh, sighs and groans leaked out.
“Is there anything else besides that? Why don’t they just call it a den of Soviet spies?”
“Oh, it’s not just that… The intelligence department has figured out how they are connected. Now this…”
“Hey! They haven’t been able to catch even a single one of them right now, and they’re even creating and setting up a linkage organization, but the counterintelligence is only sucking their fingers? What are you guys replacing!”
“Song.. I’m sorry..”
The problem was more serious than expected. Does this mean that there are not so many people who are affectionate and loyal to this country? What’s wrong with this country? Why can’t you defend this great empire on a whim? That’s what Churchill cried out.
‘Isn’t this what the prime minister doesn’t know?’
Churchill, victor of Gallipoli and conqueror of Arabs? They said let’s lead and shoot the colonists in Africa, and kill all the Kurds in Iraq with poison gas. In the meantime, it is the children of the workers.
Until the end, the war chiefs who cry out for war sit comfortably in their chairs, and even if the operation fails, ah… I’m sorry. They’re talking like this! You ordered them to take or sink the French fleet, but they all turned around. That fleet dumped our fleet all over again at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea!
Atley had a lot to say.
Even though he had come this far, he could never have affection for Churchill and his government. The Soviet Union, whom he had detested so much in the past, had both the sons of the general secretary at the forefront.
The sons of high-ranking members of the Soviet Communist Party were obliged to serve on the front lines, and as much as they died. In victory or defeat of the Soviet army, party members in privileged positions made a significant contribution.
Who is the son of 30-year-old Churchill? He was a Conservative MP. In the comfort of the rear, I’m a noble.
“The United States, is there no further support from the United States?”
Churchill hated the Soviet Union and relied more on the rest of his ally, the United States.
Roosevelt insisted on supporting Britain and the Soviet Union to the end, despite the pro-friendly tendencies of the US Congress and the people, and was carrying out it. That was what gave the British breath of life.
“President Roosevelt has decided to divert the Pacific Fleet’s battleship forces to the Atlantic to support the defense of the British Isles. Although controversial in the US House of Representatives…”
Whoa. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief.
The massive vacancy of battleship forces that could not be replaced immediately resulted in a situation the British had never experienced before. Historically, Britain has been the unrivaled leader in surface ship power for hundreds of years, unrivaled by any other country, and has maintained the British Empire spanning five oceans and six continents based on this.
Now, however, the ships protecting the colonies and the transport ships carrying goods had to drop by the Nazi U-boats and the Creeksmarine surface fleets that began to roam in the Atlantic Ocean.
‘Terror of the Seven Seas’ Bismarck was no longer afraid of the Royal Navy’s battleship squadrons and hunted convoys in the Atlantic Ocean. The British home fleet was now fishing for Bismarck and vacated, most afraid of the Axis forces landing on the British Isles.
Only battleships could fight battleships, and Britain needed more battleships than anything else.
“The USS Nevada, USS Tennessee, and USS Maryland are said to be dispatched here. Instead, the United States should also send its fleet of aircraft carriers from the Atlantic Ocean over there to defend the Pacific.”
“Yeah, this is our situation right now, so what do they do?”
Most of the battleships in the home fleet were sunk, but a few aircraft carriers survived. Most of them were immersed in U-boat hunting, avoiding direct engagement with Krixmarine battleships in the Atlantic Ocean…
Once the U.S. supported three battleships, they could breathe a sigh of relief. Two old battleships built during World War I, and one still new. If the power was drawn from the Eastern Fleet… the worst could have been prevented.
“What is the situation in India?”
“Neru and Gandhi ultimately refused to cooperate. But I think the ‘worst’ was avoided.”
India’s vice king attempted to negotiate with leaders of the Indian independence movement, such as Nehru and Gandhi. However, the attempt was only running parallel lines.
Nehru wanted the Indians’ self-elected parliament to exercise sovereignty. as soon as the war is over.
Britain could never tolerate it. Even more so now that Suez was lost.
What sacrifices had to be made to protect India, just to spit it out? Nehru and Gandhi opposed the British supremacy in India.
But the good news was that Gandhi was a non-violent follower who opposed Indians going to war, and Nehru was a determined democrat—albeit a socialist—who would not cooperate with Nazi Germany or other Axis totalitarianism. Wouldn’t it be better to cooperate with the Soviet Union?
“Maybe… it might be better to give up India.”
When Attlee said that, the Conservative ministers frowned. Churchill bit his chin tightly and had blood in his neck, but he didn’t say anything, probably because the Labor MPs stared at him.
Nazi Germany had a card – Chandra Voss – that could influence India. With Suez open—and blocked by Britain—even if Chandra Voss went to India to launch a counter-armed uprising, Britain had very limited ways to intervene.
I just hope that Nehru and Gandhi or a handful of British troops can stop them.
“Why are you like this? This time India is the giant Gallipoli…”
“Atley! Damn it!”
Churchill turned red and shouted when Attlee mentioned his greatest weakness, the Gallipoli landing. It was the first time that Attlee, who was normally a schoolboy, would sarcastic Gallipoli like this, and all the ministers were puzzled.
“I was right there in the bloody amphibious operation. Since then, Prime Minister Churchill has been obsessed with Norway and will blow up his fleet, or push his troops into France and blow them away… What are you thinking about holding India as well? is it?”
“Fuck the bullshit! Without India, Britain wouldn’t be an empire any more! Even if dirt gets in my eyes, I can’t watch Britain’s downfall!”
“One way or another, can’t we just give up the empire that will fall?”
Only the foreign secretary, Anthony Eden, who was still awake between the two, was able to break up Churchill and Attlee.
“Once more support to the United States…”
A huge bang was heard outside. A series of gunshots followed by a binge, and several more explosions. Outside the meeting room, the guard slammed the door open.
“Everyone, take shelter this way! I think there was a bombing outside!”
“This… what is this!”
“Sir Prime Minister! This way!”
All the ministers panicked and began to flee. Attlee, who was farthest from the door, shoved old Churchill, fat and dull, in front of him. Outside, horns, whistles, and sporadic gunshots were heard as if the military police had been dispatched.
