    In eight hours the Communist Party, Red Army, NKVD, Politburo, and General Secretary Stalin expected a revised copy of the Trinity Doctrine. So in the blinking light of the Academy library Feofan Karpov, Viktor Kraminov, and Kliment Pavlyuchenko sat around a small table. Feofan typing away at a military issue typewriter, as Viktor and Kliment flipped through the various papers written by each man to add and improve the Trinity Doctrine.

    “What is this?” Viktor tapped on a two-color map showing Asia.

    “That is a geographic map of the elevation in the East Asia region.” Kliment said.

    “Why is it in your attachment for Asia maneuvers?” Viktor asked, he lit a cigarette a habit he recently picked up, Kliment found it disgusting, but Feofan was starting to enjoy the feel of tobacco in his veins.

    “I have been speaking to those Mongolian soldiers who are training under the Soviet Union. They made a comment on how we do not take into account the mountain ranges bordering Western, and Central Asia.” Kliment opened a folder pulling out lists of troop concentrations, and proposals.

    Feofan flipped to through the Trinity Doctrine to the page on Asia. The plan was to push in first through Siaking, as well as these warlord states. All that would be left was a simple mop up, and hopefully link up with the Chinese Communist Guerillas.

    “What I propose is a multiple front, instead of two major thrusts, we should focus single division’s moving into regions the we expect weak resistance.” Kliment pointed to the edge of the map shared by Russia and Siaking. “After say six divisions move in, the NKVD can follow up to the hold the areas in terms of security.”

    Feofan nodded tracing the routes with his finger, “What about the Western nations, and National China itself?”

    “That shall be accomplished by initially two large thrusts to knock the rogue Chinese states out of the war. We can then have the two thrusts link up, encircle any remaining opposition and push down into Nationalist China.” Kliment smiled spreading his hands out on the map of China.

    New Years day was the only none Communist related holiday in the Soviet Union. Families exchanged presents, and spent much needed time together resting, and talking of hopes for the New Year. Feofan Karpov sat in his family’s apartment in central Moscow, with his mother Ludmilia, his father Gregory, and two sister Nadia, and Natasha, his cousins and Aunts, and Uncle where in it as well. In past years Feofan would sit on the sides of the room listening to what was going on. Uncle Alexis got a promotion as assembly line foremen in the Shoe factory. Aunt Anyna had trouble with her students in primary school again. His sister was doing wonderful in Moscow University.

    Now Feofan was the star. Everyone wished to know what Stalin was like, what the ins and outs of the Soviet Red Army was, and most of all would he sign a picture for them. Gregory Karpov took Feofan to the side and smiled at his son. His shaggy hair now cropped close to his head, his eyes like that of a hunter, his thin frame now bulging with muscle. Little by little Feofan was becoming a model Soviet.

    “I have a gift for you son.” His father walked to his study, a sign of great status for a normal citizen, but nothing important for a NKVD man. Feofan sat in a chair and looked around the room. Images of his father’s friends from the Great War filled the room. Gregory pulled out a trunk and opened it up he produced two Luger pistols. Feofan looked at them with amazement, his instructors always spoke of the gun in reverent tones.

    “These are for you. I took them from some Germans, and I used them through the war, and the Civil War.” Gregory smiled, as Feofan took them, checking the sights, and even the clips. He walked over and closed his trunk, “No matter what you say of the Germans they are marvelous soldiers.”

    “How so?” Feofan almost took a defensive tone, but respect his father and kept his thoughts private.

    “During the Great War we pushed forward row after row, but they….” Gregory Karpov sighed, “They moved in units, used the machine gun well. Artillery coordination, telegraph lines we used runners, and had arguments over who could order who around.”

    Without even thinking Feofan went to his fathers desk and wrote a few notes down. “How was the General staff working at that time?”

    Gregory laughed, “It did not matter. We had fine Generals, as we do now, the problem was two or three lieutenants would be running a platoon by themselves. There was very little ability for adaptation you see. During the Civil War, that was when you were born, I joined the Red army. We had plenty of men to fill the army ranks, lucky for us Trot… that general made sure most of the army had an officer corp., or at least the equivalent of an officer corp.”

    “Are officers really that important?” Feofan asked.

    “Oh yes, technology is wonderful, and your men fighting can take you a long way, but without someone ordering men around nothing ever gets done.” Feofan took in what his father said. He wrote down a single sentence to sum it all up: A division, not a squad of capable officers is needed to run an army.

    Mmm, a good point. Theory is one thing, but our trio of lucky lads needs a little practical experience.

    I predict an argument between our three intrepid heroes and friends(for now anyway) with the two of them being purged and the trinity doctrine becoming karpov doctrine

    while i don't have a problem with that, i will assume that all three "boys" develop similiarly and that we have three enhanced leaders for the military. one possibility is that we have a naval, air, and a land leader... another is that we have three panzer leaders with each one leading one of the main attacks. whatever we get, i hope to be here! ! !

    WC with sov union is actually the hardest out of all of the major powers. The problem is they are awful in naval terms. Your only hope of inning the naval war is to outproduce everyone you can't beat them in terms of quality without neglecting army and airforce research.

    Viktor Kraminov, and Kliment Pavlyuchenko walked between the two rows of tables passing out freshly printed copies of the Trinity Doctrine. Feofan Karpov followed behind setting down pieces of paper, and pencils. The men and woman assembled spoke to each other as the three men went about their tasks of getting ready.

    Feofan stood before everyone and smiled, “I’d like to begin if that’s alright with everyone.”

    The room fell silent as everyone looked to the front. Feofan, as six-minute superior, took charge of the meeting. The sheer volume of information needed to bring Stalinism to the world was so staggering, no three Soviets cadets could do it alone. So the decision to create committees was decided upon. Viktor took Central Asia, and the Middle East, Kliment had Asia, and Feofan had Europe. Underneath them was all manner of self proclaimed experts, and people just wanting to help.

    “First I wish to go over the major concern I have. That being preparation. On paper we have written changes to almost every aspect of the Red Army, and I wish to know how feasible this all is.” He looked around.

    The Nurse in the front raised her hand and spoke, “ Does Comrade Stalin believe in this?”

    “Yes, he has told us so on various occasions.” Viktor said.

    “Then of course it is feasible.” The room nodded in agreement.

    Feofan smiled, “Excellent. Now we are to report to the Red Army with what changes we think they require. I want to have the three most important.” Viktor wrote the numbers one, two, and three on a chalkboard he brought in. Next to one he wrote down larger officer corp.

    The Major General stood up, “ Armor…excuse me tank development.”

    Feofan nodded at that, Viktor wrote it down. Kliment sat on the sidelines writing the proposal out. The discussion went on like this for awhile, everyone believing the Army needed one thing over another: better logistics, better transport, better tactics, standardization, more equipment, specialized troops. The list went on and on until Feofan held his hands up, “Thank you. It is rather late, and I know you have other things to do. We have enough really. We shall keep in touch with you all comrades.”

    “We are not going to bed tonight are we?” Kliment said with a sigh.

    “Afraid not.” Viktor replied.

    Well since they are the ones turning the Red Army on its collective ear it is only right that they burn the midnight oil.

    Josef Stalin Premier of the Soviet Union of Socialist Republics sat in the soft lights of the lamps around his personal office. Feofan Karpov, Viktor Kraminov, and Kliment Pavlyuchenko sat around his desk, all of them on pins and needles as Stalin read through the twenty-eight pages of revisions to the Trinity Doctrine. Stalin said not a word he just read, and at an almost grueling pace.

    When he finished he looked up, and stuffed his pipe. Lighting it he looked to each man, “Very good.”

    The weight on Feofan’s shoulders went away in an instant. Stalin stood up and slid the Doctrine back to them, “ Your paper wishes to make many changes in the military though.”

    “Correct Comrade Premier.” Kliment said.

    “Assuming we began within a year, how long until I may see results?” Stalin puffed on his pipe sending the thick Georgian tobacco smoke into the officer’s faces.

    “A year of development.” Viktor said.

    “Maybe two years of reorganizing the military.” Feofan added.

    “ I believe four years to build up the officer corp. needed to lead our Stalinist Revolution.” Kliment said weakly, very intimidated by the mere presence of Stalin.

    “So 1936?” Stalin said standing by his window looking out at the lights of Moscow.

    “I believe 1936 is the year…. We can begin building the army needed to liberate the people’s or the world.” Feofan replied.

    Stalin turned back and lifted up his telephone, “Send them in.” He sat back down and clasped his hands in front of him, “Now Comrades the services you have done for the state, as well as myself will not be ignored. First I have received reports that Comrade Lt. Karpov was organizing all of the help and planning these revisions. Is this true?”

    Viktor smiled brightly, “Yes Comrade Premier.”

    “Ahh, then I was correct in my additions.” Stalin said looking smug.

    Before Feofan could ask what he meant the doors opened and a horde of men and women walked in. Pulling the three lieutenants up, a few women and men pulled their coats, hats, and even boots off replacing them with finer things. Kliments eyes lit up at the colonel’s taps on his collar. When they were done being redressed, two men approached holding out boxes for Stalin. As reporters knelt down to take pictures Stalin smiled standing between the men.

    “Today is a great day for the Soviet Union, men like this are helping to spread the Revolution. For their services to the Red Army, and the Soviet state I am promoting them all to Colonel, and awarding them the Order of Hero of Socialist Labor.” Stalin opened the boxes and proceeded to pin the medal on each of them.

    He opened the final box and pulled out a leather bound book he smiled to Feofan a pen suddenly placed in his hand, “Would you sign this for me?”

    Feofan looked down, and wrote his name under the words The Karpov Doctrine: A Stalinist view on geopolitical politics.
