comment t1_e292wxt re: At the end of WWII, the last vestiges of the Third Reich hoped they could convince the Allies to join with them and fight the Soviets. If this had happened, do you think the costs of war with the USSR would have been worth possibly avoiding the Cold War?

Thank you for the link–that's fascinating–especially since it came from Churchill. I would have thought that England would have been absolutely opposed to any continuation of War, and only the US (if anyone) may have considered such a move. Especially with the stories of US commanders like Patton warning troops not to engage with the Soviets when they linked up as he wanted to keep on marching east.
