Yalta Conference (1945)

What was left off from this short video is the agreement of the three leaders that triggered the atom bombs for Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, the Iron Curtain for Europe, and later on the Korean, Vietnamese and the Cold Wars.

I still will never understand why Churchill and FDR agreed to carve up Germany and give eastern Europe over to the Soviets. Churchill's famous 'Iron Curtain' speech comes to mind.
