This book is about the three most powerful leaders of World War II. It traces their rise to power and their leadership, in the case of Stalin and Roosevelt, in the 1930s while Churchill was in the wilderness. And, in more detail, their war-time relationship. The three only met twice at Yalta and Potsdam and although they were allies fighting a common enemy, the seeds of Cold War were already sown at those meetings. The post war "special relationship" between Roosevelt and Churchill and the Cold War between them and Stalin was concentrated by the atomic bomb: the essential difference between pre- and post-war international diplomacy.
