IN VHS FORMAT. On February 4, 1945, powerful world leaders Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Joseph Stalin met at Yalta to craft a peacetime settlement. This OPB produced program goes behind the scenes of the meeting with archival footage, firsthand accounts from interpreters, journal excerpts, and interviews with scholars. It is a story of great hope and tragic irony, as leaders prepare to close one war and unwittingly lay groundwork for the next.
