    • Potsdam Conference-July 1945
      • Germany had been defeated, Roosevelt had died and Churchill had lost the 1945 election - so there were open disagreements.
        • Truman came away angry about the size of reparations and the fact that a communist government was being set up in Poland. Truman did not tell Stalin that he had the atomic bomb.
    • Yalta Conference-February 1945
      • Germany was not yet defeated, so, although there were tensions about Poland, the big three - Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill - managed to agree to split Germany into four zones of occupation, and to allow free elections in Eastern European countries.
        • Russia was invited to join the United Nations, and Russia promised to join the war against Japan when Germany was defeated.
