Summarize the decisions taken by leaders of the US, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union at three major conferences devoted to the war effort during WWII: Teheran, Yalta and Potsdam (make sure to list these decisions separately for each conference). What did the world leaders decide about the post-war future of Europe, particularly Germany and Poland, and the world? What mechanisms did they try to create to prevent future wars from occurring? How did these decisions affect the political map of Europe and the world after World War II? Do you see any remnants of the political order they created in our contemporary world? Do you believe that a small group of leaders should be entrusted in policing the planet and ensuring global peace? Explain your position.
For the essay, be prepared to give precise answers to the questions. Avoid vague generalities that are not backed up with specifics. Make references to relevant dates and names. The organization of the material is important since it demonstrates your grasp of the subject.
