Here is Truman, meeting Stalin for the first time, keeping from him the report of the atomic bomb test, secretly deciding to drop the bomb on Japan, and maneuvering to prevent Stalin from joining the war in the Far East, Here is Churchill, his health failing, his mind occupied with the fear that the coming election would end his career, and in the course of his often rambling talks, uttering for the first time the ''iron curtain'' phase that was to describe world policy for years to come. And here is Stalin, always the last to arrive - always surrounded by a massive guard, waving aside for the time being the idea of democratic elections in any countries the Communists controlled, losing out on his battle for the biggest reparations from Germany but winning a big slice of Germany for Poland and of Poland for Russia. Through logbooks, eyewitness accounts and newly declassified conference transcripts, the author vividly reconstructs this signal moment in recent history, when these men met to forge a peace and a new face for Western Europe, but in effect signed a tri-parties declaration of the Cold War. Illustrated. Description text copyright 2005 BooksForComfort. Item ID 8968.. Nr Fine in Chipped DJ. Orig owners name in ink inside front cover. 8vo..
