Stalin's Unwanted Child by Wilfried Loth
Book DescriptionHow did Germany come to be divided during the Cold War? The renowned German historian Wilfired Loth has examined the archives of the Eastern side and comes to fascinating conclusions. He demonstrates that Stalin wanted neither a separate state on the soil of the Soviet Occupation Zone nor a socialist state in Germany at all. Instead, Stalin sought a joint administration of Germany by the victorious powers, a Germany along the lines of the Weimar Republic. The socialist separate state of the GDR is primarily the product of Walter Ulbricht's revolutionary zeal, which was able to unfold in the context of the Western walling-off policy.

This text offers a new interpretation of the Cold War and how its aftermath shaped the course of history. The history of the Cold War is more than the history of a confrontation. There is also a need to look into why the Cold War did not become more heated, and how it was finally overcome.
