Yalta ConferenceDuring an approximate period of forty-two years, the hideous face of communism lay hidden in the shadows behind the Iron Curtain in Eastern Europe. It all started in the early 1930's, when Adolph Hitler seized control of the economically and sociologically bankrupt Republic of Germany that tried to pull itself out of the whirlwind in which the devastating defeat of World War I left it, not twenty years before. Hitler promising glory and revenge to the impoverished Germans, convinced them to march against the World, thus starting the worst nightmare the World had ever seen to date.After only two years of war, Hitler's Germany controlled all of France, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as much of North Africa, and his war machine strongly threatened Great Britain with continuous air raids. On the other side of Europe lay the giant, untapped Soviet Union, with its enormous deposits of oil and metals, as well as great agricultural plains, all of which Hitler considered vital for the good continuation of the war. (Leffler) Thus on the twenty second of June 1941 Germany and the Axis nations begin operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union.( prof.

The three players were Winston Churchill of Great Britain, Franklin Delano Roosevelt of the United States and Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union, two of which, Roosevelt and Churchill, seeked nothing more than a 'moral' world order, culminating with the Roseveltian United Nations. The third one, Joseph Stalin, however, seeking a new Soviet Empire. This meeting of the "Big Three" at the former palace of Czar Nicholas on the Crimean southern shore of the Black Sea took place February 4th to February 11th 1945. Thesis argument is that The Yalta Conference effectively gave birth to the following fifty years of conflict between the East and the West,the Cold War, as well as sold...
