By: Jane & Mariam Allegory: The Tehran Conference & the Grand Alliance George Orwell "When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, "I am going to produce a work of art." I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing." (Orwell)

Frederick was a common enemy of both Animal Farm and Foxwood
"A deputation of neighbouring farmers had been invited to make a tour of inspection." (Orwell, 123). Animal's Confusion Have been told to avoid all habits of a man
Animals were unsure if they should fear the pigs more or the humans
"They worked diligently, hardly raising their faces from the ground, and not knowing whether to be more frightened of the pigs or of the human visitors" (Orwell, 124) All three groups have very different and contrasting ideologies
Communism vs. Western Ideals
Great Britain = colonial
United States = capitalist state
Soviet Union = communist state "Strange Alliance" Big Three Allied Leaders at the Tehran Conference Fancy dinner in the farmhouse after inspection
Pigs persuade neighbouring farmers that the revolution was a misunderstanding
Did not intend on provoking rebellion Celebration Alliance Alliance and agreements formed
Churchill and Roosevelt agreed to:
launch Operation Overlord (AKA D-Day) to open up a Western Front in France in 1944
allow Stalin to compress the boarder of Poland permanently - embody most of eastern Poland to Soviet Union Pigs gathered together during the dinner Mr. Pilkington's Speech & Flattery Compliments on the farm's progress, impressed with Animal Farm and its efficiency
Apologized for the cruel treatment Animal Farm received during rebellion - glad Animal farm has reconciled with humans Roosevelt and Churchill agreed to all of Stalin's demands
Appeased him to maintain an alliance among them
Pilkington rep US
Before, US refused to recognize the Soviet Union as a state
Tensions existed between US and USSR Reconciliations Simultaneous Aces Both Napoleon and Mr. Pilkington both played the ace of spades at the same time -both cheating one another
Neither was able to trust one another Symbolizes beginning of Cold War
Represents the tensions and mutual distrust between Stalin and the West
Wartime alliance of the Big Three was a temporary cooperation
As soon as the war ended, the alliance severed and broke apart (Eastern and Western Front in RED DOTTED LINES) Changes of Poland's Borders Map of Europe (BEFORE) Map of Europe (AFTER) Map of Iran "The Big Three came to settle the post-war world, but one player forgot the cards, and another forgot the chips. While they were looking for a new deck, Russia took the pot." The "Big Three" CHURCHILL ROOSEVELT STALIN Napoleon morphing into Mr. Jones STALIN ROOSEVELT CHURCHILL "That evening loud laughter and bursts of singing came from the farmhouse...The company had been enjoying a game of cards, but had broken off for the moment, evidently in order to drink a toast." (Orwell, 124) ""Gentlemen," concluded Mr.Pilkington, "gentlemen, I give you a toast: To the prosperity of Animal Farm!""(Orwell, 126) "The source of the trouble appeared to be that Napoleon and Mr. Pilkington had each played an ace of spades simultaneously."
