A brief examination of the European Advisory Commission which in 1944-45 sought to coordinate Big Three policies for postwar Germany. The EAC was hobbled by governmental suspicion, especially by Roosevelt's reluctance to give U.S. representatives the necessary instructions and authority. Much of the work is informed by the author's close contact with Philip Mosely, who was a U.S. member of the EAC.
