In 1946, William Bullitt, the fi rst U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union, U.S. ambassador to France at the outbreak of the Second World War, and onetime close advisor to FDR, wrote the fi rst book-length, comprehensive analysis of the emerging Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. During the war, as the book's new introduction by Francis P. Sempa points out, Bullitt had repeatedly urged President Roosevelt to wage war with a view toward the postwar balance of power. Bullitt recounts in this volume how the United States missed opportunities to block Soviet geopolitical gains during the war due to a fundamental misreading of the nature of the Soviet political system.
