CHEKA The History, Organization, and Awards of the Russian Secret Police and Intelligence Services 1917 to 2017: 100 Years
With completely new information in English this excellent new title gives the collector of Soviet badges and ephemera much needed information that is augmented by first class modern colour photography. The Cheka and NKVD gradually evolved into the KGB and MVD. Collectively, these agencies enabled the Soviet structure to remain in place as long as it did, and longer than it might have otherwise.
