Charles Poletti (b. 1903)
Oral history interview, 1978, ca. 600 pp. Allied military governor in Italy. Discusses the considerable contact with Russian officers he had in that post. They were observing American methods of military occupation to help plan their own methods after liberating Eastern Europe. There is a considerable amount of anecdotal material about Andrei Januarovich Vishinsky, one of the observers. Note: apparently the Poletti papers (NUCMC 74–295) contain no references pertinent to the USSR.
