Nikita Khrushchev, at a reception in theKremlin, 17 November 1956.
'If ever a system totally corrupted its servants, that was and isCommunism; and when Communism is imposed by a foreignpower as brutal and chauvinist as the Soviet Union, it not onlycorrupts, it degrades. In these necessarily sketchy andincomplete memoirs I hope to convey something of theatmosphere surrounding a senior Party official in a Sovietsatellite regime.'
Jan Sejna, former Chief of Staff to the Minister of Defence inCzechoslovakia and Assistant Secretary to the top secret CzechDefence Council, a position of enormous power, is the highestranking Communist ever to defect. His advancement in Praguewas rapid. By the age of twenty-seven he was a Colonel, aCommissar, a Member of Parliament, and a member of theCentral Committee of the Czech Communist Party. He became aGeneral when he was forty.
His descriptions of life in the top echelons of military powerbehind the Iron Curtain and his anecdotes about the leadingfigures of the Communist world with whom he dealt, includingKhrushchev, Brezhnev, Novotny, and the Soviet Military HighCommand, are vivid and unique. But what makes this book trulyremarkable is that Sejna had access to a detailed Soviet plan tosubvert the West country by country. A large proportion of thebook is a sensational synopsis of this Strategic Plan, publishedhere for the first time.
Sejna defected in February 1968. 'In the years since I leftPrague the Plan will have changed in detail,' Sejna writes,'because each section is subject to constant revision to take
into account the new factors introduced by changes in theworld's political forces. Despite these variations, I know that theessence of the Plan will be unchanged... however flexible andpragmatic Soviet policy appears, it is essentially directed towardsthe achievements of the Plan's objectives-objectives which havebeen, are and will remain utterly inimical to and subversive of thefreedoms enjoyed by the states of the Western world.'
