more a case of Churchill being able to see Stalin for what he was
More than that Churchill was a rabid anti communist with delusions of his own genius which he demonstrated while first lord of the Admiralty.
You are claiming that the government was imposed by the Soviets, you need to demonstrate that that was the case.
The fig leaf the Provisional government provided was imposed by the Soviets. The Communist party had final say over who did what in that body and as we know the ultimate decision lay in Moscow.
I need to merely point out that the fact the last Prime Minister of the government in exile and other members of that government were part of the provisional government of national unity
"Not in an official capacity" so they were not representing anyone except themselves.
No, those figures show that 1 in 8 Polish adults were in the PZPR; they do not provide any information at all about the number who were "non communist".
And 7 in 8 were not members of the PZPR AKA The Communist party the one controlled from Moscow, not a bunch of pre war splitters.
The Non Party Communists who you hint at would be very difficult to count. So it’s reasonable to assume my interpretation of the figures you provided is correct with an acceptable margin of error of course.
Designating Independents as Communist or others as communist is a subjective thing to be doing that has no place in a rational examination of history.
UK + Commonwealth USA + Poland + rearmed German forces + nuclear weapons = more than the USSR could have dealt with. But remove the USA (or to be more exact, their nukes) from equation and there is a very different result.
Well we will never know cos it didn’t happen. It was a nonstarter as I said
