The Instant New York Times Bestseller "I could not put this
extraordinary book down. Three Days at the Brink is a masterpiece:
elegantly written, brilliantly conceived, and impeccably
researched. This book not only sparkles but is destined to be a
classic!" -Jay Winik, bestselling author From the #1 bestselling
author and award-winning anchor of Special Report with Bret Baier,
comes the gripping lost history of the Tehran Conference, where
FDR, Churchill, and Stalin plotted D-Day and the Second World War's
endgame. With the fate of World War II in doubt and rumors of a
Nazi assassination plot swirling, Franklin Roosevelt risked
everything at a clandestine meeting that would change the course of
history. November 1943: The Nazis and their Axis allies controlled
nearly the entire European continent. Japan dominated the Pacific.
Allied successes at Sicily and Guadalcanal had gained them modest
ground but at an extraordinary cost. On the Eastern Front, the
Soviet Red Army had been bled white. The path of history walked a
knife's edge. That same month a daring gambit was hatched that
would alter everything. 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-strange bedfellows united by their
mutual responsibility as heads of the Allied powers-made essential
decisions that would direct the final years of the war and its
aftermath. Meanwhile, looming over the covert meeting was the
possible threat of a Nazi assassination plot, code-named Operation
Long Jump. Before they left Tehran, the three leaders agreed to
open a second front in the West, spearheaded by Operation Overload
and the D-Day invasion of France at Normandy the following June.
They also discussed what might come after the war, including
dividing Germany and establishing the United Nations-plans that
laid the groundwork for the postwar world order and the Cold War.
Bestselling author and Fox News Channel anchor Bret Baier's new
epic history, Three Days at the Brink, centers on these crucial
days in Tehran, the medieval Persian city on the edge of the
desert. Baier makes clear the importance of Roosevelt, who stood
apart as the sole leader of a democracy, recognizing him as the
lead strategist for the globe's future-the one man who could
ultimately allow or deny the others their place in history. With
new details discovered in rarely seen transcripts, oral histories,
and declassified State Department and presidential documents from
the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library, Baier illuminates the complex
character of Roosevelt, revealing a man who grew into his role and
accepted the greatest challenge any American president since
Lincoln had faced.
