Victor Suvorov, author of The Chief Culprit: Stalin’s Grand Design to Start WWII (Naval Institute Press; November 14, 2008), talked about his book. He contends that Stalin intended to use Hitler’s army to weaken Europe during World War II, which would have then allowed the Soviet Union to move their forces across the continent. Mr. Suvorov argues that Germany’s attempt to invade the USSR was based on intelligence Hitler received that the Soviets were preparing to attack Germany.
Following his presentation, Mr. Suvorov responded to questions from the audience.
Viktor Suvorov was a Soviet military intelligence officer who defected in 1978. He is the author of numerous books, including Aquarium: The Making of a Top Soviet Spy. close
