The “Big Three” in Teheran, November 30, 1943

From November 28 to December 1, 1943, the “Big Three”—Franklin D. Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill—met at Teheran, Iran to discuss the progress of the war and plans for what would become the D-day invasion of June 6, 1944.

-Curchill: Pero Roosvelt, declaramos la guerra a Alemania porque invadieron Polonia, y ahora dejas que se la queden los bolcheviques.

-Roosvelt: calla, Winston, el soviético y yo estamos hablando.
