  1. What struck me in R. Hopkins’ account was that his father didn’t trust the Red Army to allow Robert to be the first American to film Berlin, but he trusted Stalin to allow free elections in Poland.

    (Or did he?)

    I’m left wondering if the negotiators for the Allies really expected Stalin to keep his word, or were they willingly blinded by the fatigue of a long war. It seems that when the Red Army made moves towards Japan in ’45, we had all the evidence we needed that Stalin was not a “team player.”
