Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the Anglo-American containment policy towards the Kommunistische Partei Deutschlands (KPD) during the period from 1945 to 1950. It traces and compares the Anglo-American attitudes to German Communism on the ground, as opposed to at the negotiating table, in the form of local military government. This chapter also examines the popular receptivity to anti-communism among the West German general public and the role of the Federal authorities in Bonn.

Keywords:   local military government, containment policy, negotiations, Bonn
