When the German Army plunged across the frontier into the USSR in June 1941,
they collided with a huge
Red Army on the way to invading Europe. In a campaign
replete with the surprises concomitant to a treasonous intelligence service, the
German Army soon encountered another surprise, the Soviet Secret Army. The
Soviet Secret Army was an army nearly as large and powerful as the humongous
Red Army, it was the NKVD. The Soviet NKVD was more than a huge espionage
empire that encompassed the entire world. It was a massive armed juggernaut of
infantry, motorized, tank, special forces, convoy, railway and police units every bit
as powerful as the
Red Army, the largest army in the world. Many of the units of the
NKVD Army, the USSR’s praetorian (police state) guard were composed of fanatical
communists, totally brainwashed to view all free men as a faceless mass to be
murdered, enslaved or subjugated.  The
NKVD Army was a Soviet Secret Army
because neither the
German Army nor the rest of the civilized world realized that it
existed as powerful back up to the
Red Army. This NKVD Army not only made sure
that the soldiers of the
Red Army would fight, but also fought to the death on the
frontlines of the Eastern Front.
Soviet Secret Army is an e-book full of surprises
that will enthrall the reader as he discovers yet another hidden facet of the evil
Soviet Empire’s Human Sausage Grinding machine.
Review Table of Contents
"On February 5, 1943 the new NKVD army was designated as the 70th Army with a total of 69,236 personnel. It was
initially assigned Far-Eastern, Transbaikal, Siberian, Central-Asian, Ural and Stalingrad divisions renamed
respectively: 102nd, 106th, 140th, 162nd, 175th and 181st Rifle divisions. The 70th NKVD Army was instantly
transferred to the K.K. Rokossovsky’s Central Front, which was preparing a local offensive. During that offensive the
70th NKVD Army suffered its first defeat and thereby shook high command confidence. Soviet Field Marshal
Rokossovsky wrote after the war: “We have been expecting too much from the 70th Army when directing it to the most
important sector on our right wing, where our troops linked with the Bryansk Front. But the former border-guards
failed due to the poor experience of the officers, who found themselves in a difficult combat situation for the first time.
The units entered combat from the march, in elements and disorganized, without proper artillery support and
As the Battle of Kursk salient loomed on the horizon, the 70th NKVD Army was reinforced considerably, with the staffs
of 19th and 28th Rifle Corps arriving, followed by the 19th Tank Corp, 132nd, 211th and 280th Rifle divisions, 1st
Guards Artillery division, several separate armor, engineer and aerial units. Withstanding countless German assaults
during the battle of Kursk, the 70th NKVD Army fought quite well, but that is easily explained by its strength. By the
end of August 1943, there were 18 divisions within the 70th NKVD Army’s ranks, along with generous supplies and
replacements! Eventually, the 70th NKVD Army ended its warpath in the Battle of Berlin, after heavy fighting in Poland
and East Prussia."
