About the book: Baier tells the history of the secret meeting that set the stage for victory in World War II – the 1943 Tehran Conference, where Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin plotted the war’s endgame, including the D-Day invasion. Baier’s history centers on these crucial days in Tehran, and makes clear the importance of Roosevelt, who stood apart as the sole leader of a democracy, recognizing him as the strategist who could ultimately allow or deny the others their place in history. Baier illuminates the complex character of Roosevelt and his relationships with Churchill and Stalin during the decisive turning point in World War II.
"In his monumental new book about one of history's most epic events, Bret Baier has outdone himself yet again. 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,New York Times bestselling author of 1944 and April 1865.
