About
The gripping lost history of the Tehran Conference, where FDR, Churchill, and Stalin plotted D-Day and the Second World War's endgame.

In November 1943, with the fate of World War II hanging in the balance, a daring gambit was hatched. The Big Three - Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin - secretly met for the first time to chart a strategy for defeating Adolf Hitler. Over three days in Tehran, Iran, this trio made essential decisions agreeing to open a second front in the west, spearheaded by Operation Overload and the D-Day invasion of France at Normandy. They also discussed what might come after the war, including dividing Germany and establishing the United Nations, laying the groundwork for the postwar world order.

Bret Baier's epic history Three Days at the Brink centers on these crucial days. With new details found in rarely seen transcripts, oral histories, and declassified documents, Baier illuminates the complex character of Roosevelt, revealing a man who grew into his role and accepted the greatest challenge any American president has faced since Lincoln.
