      • The 'big three' no longer had a common enemy now that Germany was defeated. Their relationship was less friendly as they started to think for their countries only.
      • LEADERS STAY THE SAME
    • POTSDAM, JUL-AUG 1945
      • STALIN, ATLEE AND TRUMAN (didn't get on as well as the other leaders)
        • Stalin found out about the atom bomb which made him furious because it was kept a secret. He thought it was a warning to the USSR. Truman wasn't afraid to cause conflict between USA and USSR because he believed he had the ultimate weapon. This is how the 'arms race' started.

      • a river would be a border from Poland to Germany
