Tensions during the Yalta Conference in February 1945 threatened to tear apart the wartime alliance among Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin just as victory was close at hand. Katz uncovers the dramatic story of the three young women who were chosen by their fathers to travel with them to Yalta. Anna Roosevelt, Sarah Churchill, and Kathleen Harriman were each bound by fierce family loyalty, political savvy, and intertwined romances that powerfully colored these crucial days. Situated in the political maelstrom that marked the transition to a post- war world, their relationships were tested and strengthened by the history they witnessed and the future they crafted together. -- adapted from jacket

This book is really good if you like history and learning a little bit about the personal lives of these iconic figures. I really enjoyed learning about the daughters of Roosevelt, Churchill and the ambassador. You also learn about the men themselves, including Stalin. It is hard to read about them treating Stalin kindly since his help was needed to keep the peace after WW2 since he was treating his own people so horribly! I also learned a lot about the horrors of Poland committed by Stalin and Hitler both, and how they tried to blame each other.
Really good read!
I recommend The Daughters of Yalta.
