This is the last of the 4 Dobbs novels following Winston Churchill through the course of World War II. Like the others, I think it is of high quality, but I found this one to be much harder to read than the previous three, as it actually gets into much darker details about the sorts of atrocities that were committed by the Russians and the Nazis (but in this case mostly the Russians) in the final months of the war.

A very interesting book that brought this excellent series on Churchill to an end. It covers the week long Yalta Conference which outlined the creation of the United Nations, what post war Europe was to look like and how Russia was going to be brought into the war against Japan (and the cost of this). This certainly set the tone for the European scene over the next 40 - 50 years and more.

Throughout proceedings Stalin seemed to have the upper hand, including the Conference taking place in Crimea! If this is an accurate record it appeared to me that Roosevelt wasn't well enough to play his full part and this led to some appeasement towards Stalin, and almost betraying Churchill and Poland. As Roosevelt died a couple of months later it is clear he wanted to ensure above all else that the United Nations was set up to ensure lasting peace (at least in his eyes) and even gave Stalin three votes in the United Nations to ensure this. Obviously this is historical fiction so may not be a fully true record but does feel rooted in quite a bit of fact. It does make me want to go away and research events at this time more.

It is clear Churchill didn't trust Stalin and was proven right with events that happened over the next few months and years. I feel really that the die was already cast, so really the Conference was a bit of a Lame Duck Conference.

I particularly like the way the author weaved in the events of one Polish man and his 'adopted' family into the events in the book. Very readable and I do recommend the whole series. ( )

Finally, we get to the end. If you're going to read this 4 part series, start at the beginning. This 4th book is the story of the Yalta conference between Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin. Of course, we know what happened, and it was hardly a triumph, except perhaps for Stalin. And then temporarily. Churchill's Triumph is an odd title since it's hard to see anything triumphal. Dobbs does try to draw out some satisfaction, but he seems to be trying too hard. Anyway, it is a jolly fine read. Dobbs knows how to plot a narrative and even though this 4th book relies more than the earlier ones on the argumentation of the three protagonists, he knows how to find the balance to keep the story moving. Highly recommend the series. ( )

I enjoyed this - a good insight to the frailities of men often revered as gods. ( )
