1 Change of Guard For International Patrol In Vienna / Russians Relieving Americans / January 1952
Hardcover Very Good Photographic Image with photos 
Following World War II, American-Soviet military relations in Vienna were never more than tolerable and, over time, rapidly declined. Beginning in 1945, US Army efforts to improve the situation in Vienna evoked deep suspicion and resistance on the part of the Soviets. In addition, Soviet black market activity proved endemic, producing a barrier to sound American-Soviet relations. Most troubling, Soviet state security organs sought out and abducted a variety of individuals. By 1949, after the probable Soviet murder of an American government official and Soviet harassment of American operatives in the city, the US Army's Counter-intelligence Corps began to conduct operations aimed at the Soviets. The above difficulties occurred at a location that was of secondary importance to the Superpowers. Photos include US, Russian, French and British units. Album approx.3.5x7.5 inches. 21 photos, approx. 2.5x4 inches
