Sir Winston Churchill on… Joseph Stalin

During the late stages of the second World War, Sir Winston Churchill used to meet regularly with the other two primary leaders of the allied armies, FDR and Joseph Stalin.

Churchill’s relationship with Staling was complex; they got on well as friends but their politics were world apart, and Britain was increasingly sidelined during the post-war plans.

Here, with typical candour and frankness, Sir Winston remembers one such meeting, in particular an exchange which neatly summarises the difficulties he faced having ‘the Russian Bear’ around the table.

Sir Winston Churchill on… The ‘Sinews of Peace’ Address

Sir Winston Churchill was well-known for his epic speeches; rallying the British people in their stand against Fascism during the war.

One of his most famous speeches however, was the ‘Sinews of Peace’ address, given post-war in 1946 at Westminster College, the subject of this exclusive extract.

In typically elegant and politically astute terms, Sir Winston recalls the inspiration for his dark counsel on the future of Eastern Europe under the rule of Stalin’s Soviet Union.
