From Yalta to Berlin: The Cold War Struggle Over Germany

From Yalta to Berlin: The Cold War Struggle Over Germany Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The question of German unity was the most important and intractable problem to remain unsettled after World War II. W.R. Smyser explores "the German Question" and uses it to illustrate the story of how Germany was divided and then united against a background of global events and a continuing search for stability in an area that has not known it since the age of Charlemagne. Focusing on the personalities who controlled Germany's fate — FDR, Churchill, Stalin, Kennedy, Brandt, Reagan, Bush, Gorbachev, Kohl and others — Smyser creates a masterful portrait of a country that has played a pivotal role in the history of the 20th century.

Book News Annotation:

Focusing on the personalities who controlled Germany's fate—FDR, Churchill, Stalin, De Gaulle, Adenauer, Kennedy, Brandt, Reagan, Bush, Gorbachev, Kohl and others—this book chronicles the story of how Germany was divided and re-united, using the German Question to illustrate the difficulties and opportunities of diplomacy in our age. Smyser has written several books on German-American relations and a landmark work on the German economy.
