The Decisions Of Roosevelt, Churchill And Stalin In Wwii

1112 words - 5 pages

U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill (the British Prime Minister) were all influential leaders in their time. While they didn’t always agree and cooperate with each other, they put aside their differences to save the world from a Nazi regime. The Big Three cooperated and planned with each other at the Tehran Conference and the Yalta Conference to strategize attacks on the Japanese and Germans, to form the United Nations, figure out Germany’s division and reparations, and countries’ new boundaries.
The Big Three met first in Iran’s capital, Tehran, where they covered four main problems (Naden and Blue 187-188). They had to make a plan of attack ...view middle of the document...

Stalin obviously supported the government with the communists. FDR and Churchill didn’t want to let Poland be a communist country. However, Stalin could fight to hold the country if he wanted to and Poland didn’t really need more war at this point. They compromised and said that Poland would have a temporary communist government until democracy could be established (Yalta Conference 1740-1741). Other European countries were left without governments and the Roosevelt and Churchill wanted them to be democracies so they asked Stalin to enact provisional governments until the countries were stable enough to create their own democracies. Roosevelt and Churchill couldn’t really argue with the communist provisional governments, since Stalin’s army was enormous, and like Poland, they didn’t want more war (Was the Yalta Conference the Best? 304). The Big Three also determined that the Soviets would declare war on the Japanese (Yalta Conference 1740). Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill negotiated Germany’s post war government, and they came up with the joint occupation policy. They would split Germany into areas governed by America, Britain, France and the USSR (Yalta Conference 1739-1740).
Not everything decided at the conferences worked out for the best though. Roosevelt thought he could make Stalin to like the USA during the conferences by being nice and polite. But it didn’t work. After the war Stalin refused to let the countries under his control become democracies (Was the Yalta Conference the Best? 301-303). Keeping the countries communist led to a lot of tension, especially between America and the USSR (Campbell 573-574). When both sides had nuclear weapons, it became a stalemate. This “Cold War” was a competition between two nations with large militaries and there was a lot of hostility, even though there wasn’t any actual fighting (Stalin 86). In America, the Republicans used this situation to campaign against FDR for many years, since it was seen as a failure.
There were bad parts to the two conferences such as the American Republican response and the Cold War. However there were also positive things too, like collaborating on attacks on Germany and Japan, the United Nations, and territorial boundaries. The choices the Big Three made at the conferences will affect world politics for many years to come. Therefore it is vital people understand what was...
