As usual, when Western historians write about Soviet Army hero, Sorge, their articles are slanted in a way to make the readers believe that Stalin did not listen to his intelligence reports. He did and because of his reports, the Red Army were able to repulse the Germans.

All spies are considered amateurs. To label a spy professional is disparaging to the rest. But I defied rules and consider Sorge the only professional spy in the world. He was good in seduction. He was the greatest actor. He had nerves of steel, a must if you are going to enter the spying business. And he saved the Soviet Union!

The guy was as it happens far more intelligent than a psychotic autocrat Stalin. May Perun bless is spirit.
