Summary
In February 1945, three of the twentieth century's towering figures - Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Joseph Stalin - met at Yalta as their armies converged on Berlin. Each came with sharply different views of what the world should look like after the war. S.M. Plokhy draws on newly declassified Soviet documents to lay to rest the myth of Yalta. --Back cover
