Russia question 1941?

Post by Phil » 02 Apr 2003 15:43

Hi,

I read somewhere that during the winter of 1941 soviet troops were moved from the Russo-Japanese border to outside Moscow because a Russian spy found out that Japan had no plans to attack Russia. What was the name of the spy? also any other information or websites would be great.

Thanks
Phil :)

Phil, the spy in question probably is Richard Sorge.
