Have you been watching this? If you have not, Showtime has this series by Stone that is remarkable, from the standpoint of mainstream USA television. In the first installment he reaffirms the central role that that USSR played in defeating Nazi Germany and the terrible price paid by the Soviet people. In the second, which i just finished watching, he discusses the end of the war in Europe and the death of Roosevelt. But what is particularly striking is his examination of the manner in which Henry Wallace, who had been Roosevelt’s VP, had that position stolen from him in the 1944 Democratic Convention and handed over to a mediocre Senator from the state of Missouri: Harry S. Truman.
This series continues on and it really is engrossing. Take a look when you get a chance.
