46 thoughts on “Potsdam 1945 – Where the Cold War Started

  1. I understand the necessity of relocating the Germans but man 14 million people being ethnically cleansed with 500k dead is a high price when the war was over. Hitler really did just destroy Germany further

  2. It always has amazed me that the big three and their professional politicians thought that only another of their ilk would be able to manage public affairs. I suspect that many managers and other professionals resided in Germany who had not been nazis.

  3. The potsdam conference was as inhumane as all the actions of the second world war and to believe that the cold war being the worst outcome from it is naive. We havnt yet seen the end of the consequences of the decisions taken there.

  4. I think the West has always had a romantic notion about the intentions of Kremlin and its imperialistic aspirations. Hence, that led to an "ocean of tears" for all nations in Eastern Europe for centuries. Hope that these illusions are over, especially now when we have almost the entire region in NATO and EU.

  5. Given the fact that Roosevelt's wife was an active communist fellow traveller was probably why he was so sympathetic to the Moustache. After the war, she wrote a regular newspaper column. Whenever the Party line changed as announced in Pravda, her 'line' changed in her column to follow Stalin's policies.

  6. 7:41 To what extent was this simply a defensive buffer zone vs in line with their stated objective of spreading communism worldwide?

    It seems like wherever the USSR could impose a communist government, they did.

  7. If the US had been forced to invade Japan it’s very likely the Soviets would invade not just Hokkaido, but also northern Honshu by 1946 as the American invasion bogged down on Kyushu and southern Honshu. Without the bomb when the war ended sometime between 1947-50 we would almost certainly have had a North and South Japan divided between the Allies and Soviets.

  8. The host makes a point about the Soviets not having enough amphibious equipment to make a landing at Hokkaido, and while this is a generally agreeable point, what the Soviets do have is an experienced and well used airborne infantry contingent, whose forces could have been used reasonably to capture ports and other beachheads for further reinforcements, I'm sure however that this plan if it ever did exist, was only in preliminary stages as I'm sure they would have wanted to secure Manchuria and Korea before launching any invasion of Japanese mainland, and the war was well over before that was accomplished.

  9. Funny. I took a college level course on 20th Century China back in the 70s, and the text said that The Communist bore the brunt of the fighting against the Japanese and that The Nationalist were laying low to, you know, stick it in the back of The Communist after they'd done all the heavy lifting, but The Communist were more together and prevailed anyway, having "The People" on their side and all.

    So, I wonder what really happened?

    Signed – "Old & Confused"

  10. "orderly and humane" 2-3 million Germans died of 17 million displaced, not half a million of 14 million displaced but sure, downplay those numbers of an ethnic genocide committed out of vengeance. After all it cannot be said that the Allies did exactly what the Germans and more in retaliation.

  11. In my opinion I would have given France nothing.
    You surrendered your country in 6 weeks and then other nations had to come to your rescue.
    Shut up and sit in the corner.
    I don't even know why the other three were even talking to France what for.
    Jesus Christ anyway

  12. Don't go remake every video, you will never finish.
    While I like the series I would like to see the final episode. The Wall Coming Down and the Russian Federation Flag replacing the Soviet Union Flag.
