 The Tehran Conference's Influence On the Post-war World
The course of negotiations at the Teheran Conference dealing with Germany involved Stalin's unabashed desire to destroy her as an independent and economically self-reliant state, with neither of his counterparts being able to decide whether his aims were justified.
The Teheran Conference was key to Poland's political future simply because it served as the forum for informally deciding two major issues - Soviet recognition of the Polish government in exile and American acknowledgement of Soviet concerns regarding that group of exiled Polish diplomats and high-level officials.
The fact remained that the fate of the Polish government in exile and resultingly, that of Poland herself, was unofficially decided by the diplomatic outcome of the Teheran Conference.

 Roosevelt's Report to Congress on the Crimea Conference
At the time of the Teheran Conference the Russian front, for instance, was removed so far from the American and British fronts that, while certain long-range strategic cooperation was possible, there could be no tactical, day-by-day coordination.
Now the Crimean conference was a meeting of the three major military powers on whose shoulders rest the chief responsibility and burden of the war.
Although, for this reason, another nation was not included-France was not a participant in the conference-no one should detract from the recognition that was accorded there to her role in the future of Europe and the future of the world.

The two Western allies had met prior to this conference on numerous occasions, and it appears that Roosevelt was trying to be very sensitive to Stalin's suspicious nature, and did not want to offend him in any way.
Some scholars point out that Roosevelt attempted to use the same methods of negotiating at these wartime conferences that he used in domestic situations, which meant relying heavily upon personal connections, and that this had somewhat unsuccessful and far-reaching results.
