Description

Award-winning Harvard historian S.M. Plokhy delivers a "convincing revisionist analysis" (Publishers Weekly) of the February 1945 Yalta conference. Bolstered by Soviet wiretaps, Plokhy's engrossing narrative of Stalin, Churchill, and FDR's negotiations reveals the West did better than previously thought. "An astute reappraisal of the Yalta Conference . Fresh research drives this scholarly study of the complex blend of Yalta's personalities and ideas."-Kirkus Reviews

Professional reviews

"The Yalta Conference of 1945 allowed the Allied leaders--Stalin, Churchill, and FDR--to determine the fate of postwar Europe. The history delves into the political intrigues of the three men, all acting in their own spherical interests. The significant consequences resulted in a new division of Europe that allowed Germany to remain intact and later form a democratic government, unlike the ruinous Versailles Treaty following WWI. Narrator Henry Strozier's sonorous voice emphasizes and inflects his words but never deviates to create characterizations for any of the famous characters. Many listeners prefer his straight-from-the-page treatment of nonfiction, and he does it well. Listeners can expect an extensive work intended for avid students of war and history. J.A.H.
