Drawing the Line: The American Decision to Divide Germany, 1944-1949by Carolyn Woods Eisenberg
Pub. Date: 03/28/2005
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
In this fresh and challenging study of the origins of the Cold War, Professor Eisenberg traces the American role in dividing postwar Germany. Drawing upon original documentary sources, she explores how U.S. policy makers chose partition and mobilized reluctant West Europeans behind that approach. The book casts new light on the Berlin blockade, demonstrating that the United States rejected United Nations mediation and relied on its nuclear monopoly as the means of protecting its German agenda.
