At the Tehran Conference in 1943, Joseph Stalin proposed liquidation of the German general staff by summarily executing 50,000 German military officers. Stalin's remark enraged Winston Churchill. Franklin Roosevelt tried to break the tension by jokingly offering up a "compromise" figure of 49,000; Churchill left the room. Stalin and Molotov pursued Churchill and persuaded him to return, but did not convince him Stalin's comment was not seriously intended. Churchill's vision (and the rule of law) mostly prevailed, though, following the end of hostilities in Europe in 1945.
