The negotiations about an Austrian State Treaty between 1946 and 1955 caused the waste of more man-hours of sheer boredom than any other Western-Soviet negotiation of the post-war years. This was because for long periods either one side or the other, or both — but more often the Soviet Union alone — had wider political or strategic reasons for delaying a treaty.
