Using German and previously closed or underutilized Soviet archives, this work brings to date the historiography of one of the most important aspects of twentieth-century international relations: the steps by which Germany and Soviet Russia, the two pariah states of the First World War, would find common ground and establish a relationship whose impact would be felt through the Second World War. It focuses especially on the earliest secret contacts between the German military and the fledgling Soviet regime.
