"For my thesis, I attempted to understand the Polish agreement reached at the Yalta conference and its reception by the public in the United States and Britain. I argued that Poland was the central issue at the Yalta conference and that the Big Three alliance deteriorated as a result of the agreements reached on Poland. I believe that understanding the public reception of the Polish agreements is important in understanding the history of the Yalta conference. Therefore, I sought to incorporate how the topic was covered in the press and I utilized polling available from the period. Ultimately, Roosevelt and Churchill oversold the agreement to their peoples and governments.
