This concluding chapter examines the ongoing tensions between military intelligence organs and the state security departments assigned to monitor the military. It describes the security police's role in the last major purge campaigns of Iosif Stalin, especially against Leningrad Party leaders. It also discusses the MGB's role in the intensifying anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist policies and purges under Stalin. The keys to the power of Iosif Stalin were the NKVD, OGPU, MGB, and NKGB. State and social aspects of Stalinism continued to develop towards the end of the era examined in this book. The evolution to a new era in the Soviet Union and to a new phase of Soviet socialism accelerated after the death of Stalin.
