I was a bit younger than Paddy, but I remember, in 1942-43, reading  
the Daily Worker and PM, listening to Johannes Steel and Elmer Davis  
on the radio.  For two years the whole of Stalinist/fellow-traveler  
propaganda centered on one and only one point: the demand for an  
immediate Second Front.
