Yalta YALTA  

Autumn 1944. An astonishing and globally transforming meeting that will literally change the shape of the world ...

This is the story of eight tense, exhausting often hilarious days of a deadly poker game played by the Big Three: Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill. How each strained every nerve to out-manoeuvre, trick, bully, spy on, trounce and trip up their fellow players. At stake - twenty five million men in arms, the wealth of Europe - and the future of the world.

But Stalin holds the aces. He has access to Roosevelt and Churchill's private correspondence through Donald Maclean, the most dangerous of the Cambridge spies, in the British Embassy in Washington. Day by day, as his marriage spectacularly disintegrates, this brilliant, arrogant Englishman extracts and passes the most secret correspondence to his Russian Control, in dead letter boxes in Washington and New York, or in person. Thence, it is flashed to Stalin.

Who will be the winner in this clash of the titans?
