What was unknown? Russia was no friend of ours, they helped bring the germans several hundred mi ...
The Yalta agreement agreed on allowing free elections for freed countries after the war.



Eastern Poland was never part of that submission as Stalin wanted E. Poland to be Russian which was something to do with previous historical claims.

You are right, the rest of the Eastern states were supposed to get elections and as I have stated before to someone else maybe, the political events after 1945 in S. Korea had a large impact on the change in that situation. Post 1945 Communists were rounded up and imprisoned or slaughtered to prevent their participation in the democracy process in S. Korea.

Maybe Stalin saw democracy as a farce after that .........   ?

A huge mistake, the American public was not explicity anti-German even after peal harbor.


FDR needed to win an election first knowing the public were against war with Germany, which he did.  

We couldn't even have mounted a credible assault on the nazis without the Yanks over here in number and there lend and lease programmes.  

Dunkirk had been a disaster.

Its anybody's guess how much longer the war would have dragged on for.
