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.
