- Program Description
“ In March of 1946, Churchill referred to the Iron Curtain that now fallen across the continent to divide the former allies, Russia, Britain and the United States. The curtain represented a Cold War, where yesterday’s cooperation became today’s hostility, where yesterday’s friends became today’s enemies. This Cold War became the dominant factor in international affairs of the next generation.
Where did the break come: How could the rapport of a firm alliance become the alienation that turned every major development into a crisis of confidence? This chapter details a number of crucial episodes during the coalition period that would indicate there had never really been a genuine alliance, that the allies were not united in a common cause, but only against a common enemy.”
