ABSTRACT
Focuses on the attitude of British and the U.S. labor towards the World War II. Mild support of the U.S. Congress on the Soviet proposal of opening second front during the World War II; Defeating of a "Vansittartite" resolution on Germany which had sought to implicate the vast majority of the German people in the war crimes committed by the Nazis, advocating instead that only those directly responsible be punished; Resolutions passed in the Congress calling for guarantees that labor's gains would remain intact; Failure of the U.S. government to do anything about the Beveridge Report and attempt of the insurance companies to sabotage the report; Left-wing conservatism of the Soviet labor, ready to accept anything if it will help the Soviet Union; Orientation of British Trade Unions' General Council to adopt a middleway solution and opposed to anything either of Left or Right which makes it less probable or plausible.
