For the first time, political leaders, military personnel and spies who built and ran the country speak candidly about what the Soviet Union really wanted during the forty-year-long cold War. Part One recounts the story of Stalin's attempt to take control of Germany and Western Europe in the aftermath of World War II. Soviet agents and communist officials tell of their efforts to seize political power in the war-torn European states, a goal frustrated by Western resolve and Stalins own ruthless methods.
