I should add: I don’t know how Russian history records this, and US history certainly avoids this conclusion (as historians often engage in unabashed FDR-love) but in my view, any decent read of history shows that at Yalta, FDR traded Eastern Europe to Stalin for a half a million young Russian soldiers who died so Americans didn’t have to.

Your thoughts?
