While nations battled with bombs and guns, their leaders dueled with subtler weapons-charm, flattery, and deception. The outcome reshaped the world.
This critically acclaimed four-part documentary examines the 20th century’s bloodiest conflict from a completely unique perspective: the mind games played by its principals. Taking you inside the heads of historical figures, Warlords analyzes four psychological duels-Hitler v. Stalin, Churchill v. Roosevelt, Churchill v. Stalin, and Roosevelt v. Stalin-each marked by mutual suspicion, false promises, and hidden agendas.
What delusions drove Stalin to sign a pact with Hitler, his ideological enemy? How did Roosevelt boost Churchill’s resolve early in the war, without committing U.S. troops? Why did Churchill argue so vehemently for a southern invasion of Europe, and why did his two allies refuse? And why did Roosevelt trust Stalin more than he did Churchill? Using the leaders’ own words-as well as the personal recollections and private diaries of their most intimate advisors-Warlords provides surprising answers to these provocative questions. The four warlords emerge as fascinating, flawed, and fully human.
