Talk:Tehran Conference

This sentence:

Took note on November 30 that Operation OVERLORD would be launched during May 1944, in conjunction with an operation against Southern France.

Seems a bit odd since the Overlord was actually launched in June, not May. Is this sentence in error, or was the operation delayed? Please update the article accordingly. ---mav 06:38, 1 Dec 2003 (UTC)

No it's correct - Overlord had to be postponed, and Anvil (Dragoon as it became) was postponed further.

The picture in the article is at the Yalta conference.

The picture in there now is of Teheran. Roosevelt looked a lot more ill by Yalta.

Later on, critics claimed that Roosevelt and Churchill were weak, refusing to stand up to Stalin. However, looking back on the conference, it is arguable that it was Stalin who was forced to make the most concessions and to fight the hardest for what he wanted.

Wait. This doesn't make sense. It may be true that Stalin fought the hardest for what he wanted but that doesn't contradict that Roosevelt and Churchill were weak. Also, looking at the "Major Conclusions" I don't possibly see how Stalin could have made the "most concenssions". Support Turkey and... be supported by Western Powers and get the borders with Poland he wanted. This should be changed or at least clarified.radek 22:27, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

The final clause of this sentence: Churchill and Roosevelt also gave Stalin free rein in his own country, and allowed the USSR to set up puppet communist governments in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, the Baltic states, Romania, and other Eastern European countries what has become a reason of loss of freedom by these countries for next fifty years and genesis of Cold War. does not seem to make sense, or appears to be at the very least clumsily constructed.

WRONG HISTORY!!!!!!![edit]

Stalin did NOT SUPPORT UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDOR AT TEHRAN. HE objected to it.

This entry is horribly biased to the American view. It needs to be fixed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.216.106.168 (talk) 06:39, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Im going to try to do that! Farawayman (talk) 21:19, 11 January 2012 (UTC)
The given text does not say Stalin objected to a demand for unconditional surrender, he objected to an unclarified unconditional surrender - and it will require a source that analyses that statement to explain it rather than taking it (a primary source) at face value.
