Settling the Question of Trieste, Foreshadowing the Cold War. The extracts that follow are taken from the now declassified weekly Intelligence Review, published by the [United States] War Department General Staff, Military Intelligence Division. Very few of us, not even among those who served in Trieste with the 88th Infantry Division or TRUST (Trieste US Troops), were aware then of how fragile the diplomatic and military situation was in Trieste and along the Italian/Yugoslav border. I hope this work will be of value to the serious student in understanding the stress and undercurrents of that time. Rather than edit out redundancies in this material I have left them in place.
