General Smith, Eisenhower's wartime chief of staff, was American Ambassador in Moscow from 1946 to 1949. In this important volume he shows himself to be a man of keen perception in political affairs.

He leaves little doubt that the Kremlin's goal is world domination and that it may well attempt this in the relatively near future.
