According to this excerpt from the book A Patriot’s History of the United States: From Columbus’s Great Discovery to America’s Age of Entitlement, the author tries to show the challenges that the united states had to face while campaigning for the liberation of the entire world. The Yalta agreement involved the various leaders in the world headed by the united states as they wanted to finish the war that had destroyed various nations in Europe. Joseph staling struggled will theatre agreement especially the parts that were concerned with free elections in countries that he controlled like the elite governments in Eastern Europe. There is also evidence that shows the process of deliberation that affects the Soviet forces towards the British American soldiers instead of repatriating them. Stalin also feared that his actions would be questioned and therefore decided to hold the soldier’s hostage. Joseph sterling determined most of the decisions as he was in charge of most of the soldiers who were held captive. The Yalta agreements a basic nadir of the diplomacy in America and made it inevitable for the people to conduct the Cold War and stop the world war.
They Yalta agreement is a true reflection of what the forefathers of the American societies have to go through, including Roosevelt to ensure that there why well-laid foundations and structures that would help the world and avoid the world war; this except shows what the author wants to achieve by convincing the people that the united states were key to the liberation of the world.
the Yalta agreement
The Yalta or creamier agreement of the Year 1945 was a conference that was held between the leaders who were allies in the Second World War it was held to develop a treaty about restructuring Europe after unexpected surrender witnessed by Germany later that year. Joseph Stalin was the Soviet dictator and had to attend the conference that was held in the Crimean Peninsula. The proceedings of the agreement involved the heads of the government United States, Soviet Union and the UK (Schweikart, and Michael,313). These bodies came up with the following conclusion: That there would be a formation of the world organization that should be held in the United States to end the world war. The author shows the struggles that Roosevelt had to go through to convince the powerful nations to join the united nation.
The conference was held near Yalta resort from the 4th to 11th of February the Year 1945. By this time, President Roosevelt had been crippled from polio that he had contacted in the year 1921 and his health was declining massively.
The author is trying to prove that despite the negative notions about the history of the united states, the country has had a hand in the success of the globe. The forefathers had to struggle to ensure that the war ended and that the united nations were formed. Many countries had to be liberated especially those that were under Joseph sterling and the soviet union (Bevans,33). In the agreement the territorial trusteeship allowed five Nations to have seats in the Security Council to consult each other before the united nation can have a trustee. It was agreed that Europe should be liberated through a declaration that approved the premiere of the Soviet Socialist Republic together with the UK should help liberate countries that had suffered in Europe in the hands of the Germans.
The author was successful to some extent in convincing the people about the positive attributes of the united states and what the people like Roosevelt had to deal with to liberate the world. However, there are cases where other historians have been biased especially went comes to the history of the united states. This excerpt shows that despite all the name, the united states is the reason why there is peace through the United nations started by the Yalta agreement.
