Summary/Abstract: The Commintern was literally the general-staff of the world revolution. Not only strategy and tactics of armed uprisings were discussed there, but military and military-political courses were held at which Communists and Communist youths were trained as terrorist fighters. In the early 1930s some military courses and schools had been abolished, whereas the remaining ones were unified into the so-called „Partisan Academy“ run by the Polish Communist Carol Swerczewsky under the psudonim of „Walter“. This „Walter“ shouldn’t be confused with another „Walter“ – Josip Broz, as was donne in the latest book by Pera Simić. It is very likely that the two Walters (and eight persons in all used the pseudonym Walter in the Commintern) were meeting each other and communicating, since Josip Broz could be educated, and maybe even taught, at the above mentioned „Partisan Academy“. This cannot be ascertained with absolute accuracy since all documents concerning the activity of the Commintern military schools are still closed for the public.
