38th Guard Airborne Corps38th Guard Airborne Corps

General Lieutenant Utvenko Alexander Ivanovich Comanding
104th Guards Rifle Division
Outside Toulouse, France

“This is certainly a different mission than the last time Vasily. This time we have secure a mountain pass. It should be easier than sitting in those depots for weeks waiting to connect with our slow moving compatriots.”

“You are right comrade. At least this time we can maneuver. Being stuck in those huge depots was quite a challenge. Keeping out the French Army as well as guarding for saboteurs who wanted to blow us up along with our “liberated” supplies. All those German POWs made me uneasy as well. No good place to lock them up. To the victor go the spoils as someone said Yuri.”

“And maneuver we will have to do. I don’t like the idea of jumping into the mountains. At least it’s the foothills and not the real mountains. Let me look at the operational plan again. Hum we are expected to hold out for 6 days this time. Quite a change for the 3 weeks we held off the French. Remember when those American fools tried to bluff their way through the entrance? I don’t know what their plan was but we stopped it pretty quick eh comrade. But then again maybe they weren’t bluffing and really didn’t know that.”

“The French didn’t press their attacks either knowing our glorious forces where marching like the Golden Horde through Germany and would soon be their masters. Remember that second attack on about our 10th day there?"

“Yes where they made that big yell ran two steps and then ran all the way back to Paris. I don’t think they got even close enough for us to shoot one of them. A truly bloodless victory comrade. One to remember.”

“I heard they fought well under De Gaulle in the Maginot however. Down to the last man."

“Yes it’s amazing what the right leader can do to motivate even defeated troops. Their names will go down in history even though their bodies will go into a shallow grave. Maybe they will be dug up again and given the honors they deserve some day.”

“Amazing that those German prisoners of war at the depots never gave us any concern. They just stayed in their barracks and watched. I guess when we shot their leader when he talked back to Georgy that kind of explained our intentions. That was the first drops where I was better supplied with heavy weapons and artillery than my enemy. All we had to do was to start up one of those Shermans and that was enough to make most run. It helped us to be guarding massive amounts of heavy weapons and ammunition. For once we had the heavy artillery" He grins. "I'm glad we trained on that anti aircraft gun as well. Those new shells the American's have worked well on those bombers. We were like a miniature fort that could reach out and disrupt any attack before it started.”

“Searching for those electronic wonder boxes in the depot was time consuming and a strange thing to do. Why not just wait for the rest of the army to reach us and look for themselves? The NVDK definitely wanted to gain possession of those. Some kind of electronic machine that could do damage to the Yankee and Limey radios or super artillery or something. They never told us what they were for but they wanted them to be our first priority. I still remember what we were supposed to look for “AP-4”... find AP-4. Its hard to do when all the labels are in a different language. They were screaming at us once we found 50 or so to guard them with our lives. I wonder what those machines were used for?

“Enough of old times, when is our day to jump?”

“September 23st on the Western calendar. I cannot get a proper calendar anywhere, only these French ones. I might just miss Christmas because I can’t figure out what day it is back in the motherland. How can they have such different dates for everything? I’ll miss a number of traditions like the yolka oh I mean New Years Tree. I love decorating the … tree even if it is just with homemade ornaments and then there’s Grandfather Frost and Snegurochaka. I love the part where her heart melts her when she falls in love.”

“You sound like a little girl Vasily.”

“Oh Yuri I just miss home. I really enjoyed our leave before the American’s provoked us into this war. It’s been a pretty easy fight so far. Not like Poland. Even though those Germans were defeated they still fought like crazy men.”

“They were fighting for their homeland just like us comrade. Now we are not but neither are the Americans. How hard are they willing to fight for the Frogs? Our march through Germany and France was much like a drive down a country lane until we hit these damn mountains. Do you think the American’s will have the heart to fight for the Italians and Germans once again? The new government forming here in France has many old communists. Men who have been following the teachings of Marx longer than I have. I hear that the British have many workers waiting to be freed from the Capitalist yoke as well.”

“Time will tell comrade…time will tell.”

Scandinavian Defense Union Headquarters by Mad Missouri



Stockholm, Sweden
September 20th, 1946
0250.

Gentlemen, take you seats. Major please begin your brief.

Thank you, Sir. Good Morning Gentlemen.

In the early morning hours of the 10th over 300 hundred aircraft conducted attacks on the five main airfields of the Russian air forces that have been conducting operations over the front in Finland. Our pilots report destroying over 200 enemy planes on the ground, and another 15 in the air at a cost of only 20 of our aircraft lost. So far we believe the air operation was a complete success as we have been able to maintain control of the skies over the front for the last 15 days.

The ground offensive got off to a good start when the Swedish 4th Infantry Division broke through the Russians lines southwest of Kouvala. By early in the morning on the 12th the 3rd Finnish Infantry advancing from east of Kouvala met up with units of the Swedish 4th and completed the encirclement of Kouvala. That trapped close to 3 Russian divisions in the Kouvla pocket. This action caused a 15 kilometer gap in the Russian lines. Into this gap General Heinrich sent 3 infantry divisions supported by 2 armor brigades. Once our units were in the enemies rear areas the front just seemed to collapse. Enemy units appeared to be conducting a fighting retreat back toward the Finnish/Russian border rather than attempting to hold their ground. It is believed that the jamming of the Russian radio networks made it near impossible for the enemy to coordinate a successful defense. First Combined Army was able to push the Russians back to a line just east of the village of Virolahti before they put up a solid defense. The rapid advance of the Finnish 11th Infantry division south to the town of Hamina allowed us to cut off at least 1 possible 2 Russian Corps around the city of Kotka. At 0100 this morning the Russian forces in the Kouvala pocket surrendered. General Lung, Sir that concludes my brief.

Thank you Major.

Gentlemen, I think we can all agree this operation has gone better than any of us ever hoped. Over the last 16 days our forces have completed what can only be described as a rout of the Russian invaders. With that said, General Heinrich has request permission to suspend offensive operations in the east until 1st Combined Army can resupply and the enemy forces around Kotka have been defeat. This request has been granted.

While that is happening, we will begin operations in other areas. At 0230 the go order was given for Operation Valdemar, the liberation of the Danish islands of Bornholm, Loeso, Anholt, and Ertholmene.

Cairncross


At the end of the war, John Cairncross was posted to the Treasury. From his position there he could do all sorts of favors for his Soviet masters. In case you didn’t recognize the name he was accused of being the 5th member of the Cambridge Five and indeed he was. The Cambridge Five have so far caused all manner of security breaches throughout British MI5 and MI6. Incredible amounts of information made its way right to the Kremlin and into the spy master, Beria’s small hands.

This time Cairncross acted on his own without a mission assignment from his Soviet handler. It was rather simple for him to redirect into storage Britain’s supply of VT fuses for the 3.7 inch Anti Aircraft munitions. Not every fuse of course as each battery retained a couple of hours worth of them but until the Soviet Army attacked on May 2nd, 1946 the majority of the fuses were in storage. This occurred about 6 months ago.


It was Cairncross who first laid eyes on the paper concerning the problem with the VT fuse becoming damaged by damp conditions. This was significant enough. Added to this is the astounding fact that it could be jammed. He passed this information on to his spy master and promptly forgot about it. Then weeks later he happened to overhear a co-worker in Treasury mention the transporting and storage of all this AA ammunition and what a pain it was. A tiny bell went off in his head and he remembered the study he’d seen.

After gaining access to the invoices he noticed that it was only for the transportation of the shells. The shells weren’t identified by type nor were any special handling instructions included. So he simply altered their final destination of these shipments that night to the huge storage units in the dampest part of Britain near the live fire area of Okehampton. It made perfect sense that if you were going to use the shells for live fire practice you would store them near the live fire area so no bells and whistles should go off.


By having these shells stored in damp conditions for over 6 months they could be degraded by a good 30%. Added to the 20-30% factory failure rate documented in that same report this meant that the VT shell in the current British inventory could fail a good 50 to 60% of the time.

In his twisted mind this would greatly assist the Communist cause in overthrowing the Capitalist pigs currently in power in Britain and cement his place in history. Never mind the thousands of fellow Britons who would be killed and maimed. It was all for the cause and sacrifices had to be made. In the end more people will be better off under communism than the current corrupt system.


Who knows there maybe some future reward from a future grateful communist government when they finally obtained power, possibly some kind of leadership role? After all he is putting his life on the line for the cause. That should be worth some kind of reward above and beyond the privilege of living in a workers’ paradise. Maybe he should learn to speak Russian.
