This chapter examines the negotiations between Britain and the Soviet Union for the repatriation of all Soviet nationals and virtually all British prisoners of war (POWs) captured during World War II. It first explains how Moscow used the repatriation issue as a bargaining chip to force the Western Allies to recognize the provisional government the Russians were backing in Poland. The chapter then turns to the agreements on POWs and Soviet citizens signed at the Yalta Conference held in February 1945, mainly through the efforts of British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden. It also discusses the “Agreement Relating to POWs and Civilians Liberated by Forces Operating under Soviet Command and Forces Operating under British Command” signed by Winston Churchill and Josef Stalin.

Keywords:   repatriation, Britain, Soviet Union, prisoners of war, World War II, Poland, Yalta Conference, Anthony Eden, Winston Churchill, Josef Stalin
