This Pulitzer Prize winning book describes the Potsdam Conference and the dissent that developed immediately after the end of World War II between the United States, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain. It covers the final defeat of the Nazis, the scaling back of Lend-Lease aid, the discord over the futures of Poland, Germany, and Austria, and the final agreements on the reconstitution and reorganization of Central and Eastern Europe. Also discussed are Harry Hopkins’ pre-conference trip to Moscow and talks with Stalin; problems the United States and Britain had with Charles de Gaulle and the French; conversations and agreements among the leaders of the main three powers: Harry Truman, Josef Stalin, Winston Churchill, and later Clement Atlee; the first atomic bomb test; and the U.S. decision to inform the Soviets about it.
