A major new history of the eight days in February 1945 when FDR, Churchill, and Stalin decided the fate of the world. Harvard historian Serhii Plokhy goes against conventional wisdom--cemented during the Cold War--and argues that an ailing Roosevelt did better than we think. Much has been made of FDR's handling of the Depression; here we see him as wartime chief.

Fascinating work in its approach to Stalin. Who knew that the Bear could be so understandable? Amazing, the horse-trading that went on among the Big Three, yet all too comprehensible after Plokhy lays out, in detail, the stakes involved for each back home.
A bit heavy on seemingly trivial details at points - such as how many naps or how many tins a caviar - yet, overall, I enjoyed reading this book.
