Stalin & Churchill with Giles Milton

Home » podcasts » Episode 145

With the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany, the political make up of the Second World War was turned on its head, and Churchill allied with Stalin. So began a short-lived relationship that was both tumultuous, but also warm – though fuelled by alcohol.

Giles Milton’s new book looks at the US, British and Russian alliance that turned the tables for the Allies and led to the defeat of Hitler.
