"As a lifelong student of the Second World War, as well as the son and nephew of men who fought under one of the "Warlords" (FDR), I am amazed at the skuldugery that exisisted between them. FDR was married to the American people-they were his power base,-and had provided him the almost Imperial power of three terms in office-as well as his wartime fourth. It was FDR's destiny to never betray the American people-even at the expense of lying to his wonderful friend Winston Churchill. Churchill on the other hand may have had an American mother, but his soul belonged to the British Empire-Churchill was prepared to prostitute himself to FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt),-or court the beast Stalin,-if it would lead to the destruction of Hitler. Stalin pretty much had figured out Churchill and Roosevelt accurately-their only interest in dealing with Stalin, was to defeat Hitler,and deny Russia supreamacy in post-WWII Europe. Stalin best summed things up when he asked the following question about the Catholic Pope: "How many divisions does the Pope have?" As for Hitler, thanks to Hitler's declaration of war on both the Americans and Russians in 1941-Hitler assured his destruction and that of his Italian and Japanese partners. Warlords reveals the suspicious and self-seeking aims of even such divine personalities as Roosevelt and Churchill. Once again proving the addage that:"politics does indeed make strange bedfellows!""
Eye opening!

"We know the generalities of WWII, but this set of DVDs shows the subtle power play between the warlords that we didn't know. We find out through diary entries of aides, cabinet members, and principals just what thoughts were behind the actions taken. Personalities played an important role in trust and alliances and those alliances were constantly shifting and being tested. There are many pivotal points on which the outcome of the war and the divisions of Eastern Europe might have been very different had different tacks been taken."

"Warlords is verry informative. Hitler and Stalin I knew about, I was surprised about FDR and Churchill. I highly recommend it to all my friends."

"This is a must own for the World War II buff or those who want to understand the Cold War. Holds your attention. Well documented. Excellent source."
