V. A. KUMANEV. Anti-War and Anti-Fascist Movement of Soviet Intelligentsia in the 1903s
The author takes as his subject the broad public movement in the 1930s when it was at its height. The experience of Soviet intelligentsia's anti-war struggle in the last prewar decade is an instructive one. Long before the predatory attack by nazi Germany of the Soviet Union Soviet literature and the arts led by the Communist Party prepared the nation to rebuff enemy attacks, exposed fascist warmongers, called for unity in the face of the fascist menace. The article gives a detailed exposition of the stand taken by Soviet professionals vis-a-vis the national-revolutionary war in Spain and concludes that Soviet culture had made its contribution in the victory over fascist invaders,
N. I. KOBRIN. The Rout of German Fascists in Byelorussia in 1944
The author discusses some military-political aspects of the Byelorussian operation of the Soviet Army carried out in summer 1944, he shows how large groups of fascists were encircled and destroyed by regular forces and partisans, cites examples of mass heroism, courage and staunchness of Soviet men and officers. Much space is alotted to military-political repercussions and international significance of the operation and to refuting the inventions of bourgeois falsifiers who seek to belittle the victory of the Soviet Army and to bury in oblivion the feat of Soviet soldiers on Byelorussian soil.

The author has set out to demonstrate how the revolutionary events in Russia affected the radicalisation process in the American labour movement which found its reflection in the struggle between S. Gompers' supporters, who was then Chairman of the AFL, and the unions of miners, railway men, workers in the sewing industry and some others. Their leadership and grass-roots strove to assimilate the experience gained by the Russian proletariat in order to apply it to the solution of their own problems.
