At the end of WWII the two mightiest armies in history stood on opposite sides of the Elbe River in Germany, basking in their victory over Nazi Germany. But was that shooting war truly over? Joseph Stalin could not help but notice that by the time of their August, 1944, Conference in Potsdam, that both FDR and Churchill were no longer on the world stage, replaced by a "failed haberdasher", Harry Truman, and a British Socialist, Clement Attlee. With the Allied armies depleting their European forces for the coming invasion of Japan, Stalin embarks on an ambitious plan to continue to roll westward, and complete the submission of all of Europe before the Allies can react to stop him. And with a brilliant plan he temporarily thwarts the Americans' atomic bomb capability. It becomes a race and a struggle for a hodge-podge of Allied units, commanded by personal enemies George Patton and Bernard Montgomery, as the two generals try to patch up their differences. They try everything both in, and out, of the book, including using former German enemies to try to buy enough time to halt the Soviet onslaught.
