Who among the Soviet elite of the time I was able to think in terms of cutting-edge war? Of course, Stalin. Of course, Beria - even, perhaps, to a greater degree than Stalin, because bombs and carriers were its direct business. Perhaps Vyshinsky as "Stalinist" Minister of Foreign Affairs. Maybe, who was involved in the military-industrial complex Malenkov. A Molotov stubborn obstinate, doctrinaire - what categories of thought it? And if he thought at all - policies that have never come into contact with the fighting - of such prose as bombers?
