Cold War Begins __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ All three leaders were trying to create an agenda for governing post-war Germany.

The last one was announced as wanting to go home in 2006.
