This book studies the early stages of the Cold War from the perspective of the U.S. Embassy in postwar Prague. The main personalities include Ambassador Steinhardt and U.S. Intelligence officers Katek and Taggart. They were highly educated and motivated. Nevertheless, in 1948 they suffered a strategic defeat that helped deepen the Cold War tensions for decades to come.
