Overview

Eastern Europe: Cold Warfare III digs deep into documents long dormant in the National Archives and the records of the Central Intelligence Agency. Days passed when nations, Communist and free, were close to war and that it might commence between Eastern and Western Europe. One 1940s fear on the part of the CIA was that Soviet troops would withdraw from East Germany, leaving it to America and her allies to withdraw troops from West Germany. At this time the Soviets were helping to build a 100,000 strong military style native German police force. West Germany had only a few civilian-style police. As the postulation went, this would leave the East in a position to storm into West Germany with its military police force. This possibility that never happened is supported by documents dated 1949, and cited in the text of Eastern Europe: Cold Warfare III. Each Eastern European nation was different in how it adapted to communism and how it threw it off. It is clear that the East European peoples were both captives and in many cases willing participants in global communist expansion. Not only did these nations send arms around the world, they sent "security advisers."
