Summary 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.
