Lloyd C. Gardner is the Charles and Mary Beard Professor of History at Rutgers University and author of more than a dozen books in American diplomatic history, including Approaching Vietnam, A Covenant with Power, and Architects of Illusion.
A brilliant reinterpretation of the negotiations between Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin that divided Europe and laid the foundations for the cold war. Gardner argues that the quest for territorial agreements began at Munich and culminated at Yalta, and that FDR ultimately settled for them to maintain Allied unity in forging the peace. A tour de force (by) one of America 's most distinguished diplomatic historians....This is excellent history. Stephen E. Ambrose, Foreign Affairs.
