The Place to Find All Things Churchill

Finest Hour Extra When Churchill Met Stalin, 1942

The 30th anniversary this month of the fall of the Berlin Wall is a moment to reflect on the origins of the Cold War, which paralyzed the world for nearly half a century following the Second World War. Perhaps the inevitable result of the way the hot war was fought to the finish, the east-west split was something that Churchill feared but also understood.

Churchill’s dealings with Stalin during the war have always been controversial, but they could hardly be avoided if the Allies were to work together in defeating Nazi Germany. Recent Columbia University graduate Joshua Greenberg reviewed the Churchill-Stalin relationship as part of his capstone project, and we are pleased to publish it HERE.
