The Kremlin Letters £3

David Reynolds


In association with Yale University Press

Award-winning author and TV history presenter Professor David Reynolds reveals some of the secrets of Stalin’s wartime correspondence with Churchill and Roosevelt. He draws on new material from the Moscow archives in his book with Russian scholar Vladimir Pechatnov – now available in paperback. The messages illuminate the Big Three in novel ways, especially Stalin’s growing skill as a diplomatist and Churchill’s remarkable blind spot about the Soviet dictator. This is history with topical relevance because, in the era of Facebook and Twitter, the art of communicating across cultures is more important than ever.
