Allied Visions of Victory

By Kelly Bell

The leaders of the main Allied belligerents had wide and varied plans for the realization of their war aims. Those visions ranged from ensuring international tranquility in the new era to maintaining empires via an influx of new settlers from their various mother countries. Some wanted merely to survive; some wanted to make violently certain their enemies could never again threaten them, and some wanted pretty much everything – and nearly got it. Predictably, it was the personal aims of the men who led those countries that generally became national policy. None of them got everything he wanted, and some got nothing, but their objectives shaped the modern world as it essentially remains today, long after their deaths.
