The Secret Betrayal 1944-47

By Nikolai Tolstoy
Scribner's, 1978
480 pp. $14.95

Telling the story, now not so secret, in all its harrowing detail and with undisguised indignation, Count Tolstoy's is the most comprehensive of the recent books on the forced repatriation of Soviet citizens by the Western Allies in 1944-47. He blames British and to a lesser extent American officials for what they agreed to at Yalta and how they carried it out, and reserves his sharpest criticism for Anthony Eden.
