The six months between the meeting of Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill at Yalta in February 1945 and the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on 6 August saw the transition from old empires to new superpowers and the world divided ideologically. Michael Dobbs describes the dramatic events and the participants in this historical turning point, the geo-political background to the descent of the 'iron curtain', and the confrontation of the USA and Soviet Russia. American cut pages and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
