The author and historian is interviewed by Kate Andersen Brower about her book "The Daughters of Yalta: The Churchills, Roosevelts, and Harrimans: A Story of Love and War."

Tensions during the Yalta Conference of February 1945 threatened to tear apart the wartime alliance among Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin. Katz uncovers the story of the three young women chosen by their fathers to travel with them to Yalta.  Anna Roosevelt, Sarah Churchill, and Kathleen Harriman were each bound by family loyalty, political savvy, and intertwined romances that powerfully colored these crucial days.

Bridging the personal and the political, The Daughters of Yalta is a tale of fathers and daughters whose relationships were tested and strengthened by the history they witnessed and the future they helped to create.
