9780080377087: Aftermath of War: Everyone Must Go Home

The repatriation of surrendered enemy personnel, especially Cossacks, to the Soviet Union at the end of World War II, remains a subject of heated debate. Macmillan and the British authorities stand accused of complicity in the murder by Stalin of thousands of prisoners. This book examines the events leading up to the crisis and contends that the military and political circumstances in 1945 ensured that no other course of action could be considered. Repatriation had been agreed at Yalta and the vast numbers were a logistical and security problem for the British. Britain and the Soviet Union were still allies and Britain, the author believes, could not have been expected to withhold Soviet nationals, especially when a large number of British prisoners remained within the territory overrun by the USSR. Combining extensive research and personal recollection, this account aims to reveal the influences which convinced the author that the repatriations had to take place in the way that they did. Sir Carol Mather, a member of the Welsh Guards, was a prisoner of war in Italy and later personal liaison officer to Field Marshal Montgomery.
