Roosevelt, and Joseph Stalin – stood at the center of this unfolding drama. Their decisions and actions would change the course of the Second World War. Historian and strategic analyst John H. Maurer examines the role played by Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin in confronting the horrific menace of Nazi-dominated Europe during the crisis year of 1941.
