Magnet The Big Three
Taking a trip back memory lane has never been easier with this fridge magnet featuring a print of one of the strangest alliances ever made. The Grand Alliance was an alliance made during World War II, wherein Great Britain, the Soviet Union and the United States of America joined forces to oppose Nazi Germany. The three leaders – Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin, and Franklin Roosevelt – became known as “The Big Three” and together with their ministers, headed the alliance and met frequently to discuss strategies in impeding the threat posed by Nazi Germany. The Grand Alliance is often called the "Strange Alliance" because it united the world's greatest colonial power, the greatest communist state and the greatest capitalist state.
1945 Potsdam Conference
The Potsdam Conference was held at Cecilienhof, the home of Crown Prince Wilhelm Hohenzollern and Crown Princess Cecilie, in Potsdam, occupied Germany, from 17 July to 2 August 1945. Participants were the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States. Communist Party General Secretary Joseph Stalin, Prime Ministers Winston Churchill and, later, Clement Attlee, and President Harry S. Truman represented the three powers. Stalin, Churchill, and Truman— as well as Attlee, who participated alongside Churchill while awaiting the outcome of the 1945 general election, and then replaced Churchill as Prime Minister after the Labour Party's defeat of the Conservatives — gathered to decide how to administer the defeated Nazi Germany, which had agreed to unconditional surrender nine weeks earlier, on 8 May. The goals of the conference also included the establishment of post-war order, peace treaty issues, and countering the effects of the war.
