Tehran not Yalta

It was at the Tehran meeting of Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin (1943)  that FDR made fun of Churchill, not at Yalta as I stated yesterday.

The account of this is to be found on page 304  of "Citizens of London- the Americans who stood with Britain in its Darkest, Finest Hour"  by Lynne Olson, Random House 2010.

Olson's source is the book she wrote with Stanley Cloud "A question of honor: The Kosciuszko Squadron: Forgotten Heroes of World War II" (Alfred A. Knopf - 2003) (which I am now reading  jmp)
