Summary Joseph Stalin was a tyrant responsible for the death of millions, yet he was also a vital ally of Britain and America during the Second World War. How was it possible for Churchill and Roosevelt to deal with one tyrant, Joseph Stalin, in order to help beat another, Adolf Hitler? That's one of the key questions at the heart of this six-part history series. Using dramatic reconstructions, based on extensive research in Russian and Western archives, and extraordinary testimony from witnesses, including former Soviet secret policemen who have not spoken before on camera, the film tells a 'behind closed doors' history. In this episode: the story of the defence of Moscow and fragile alliances of the years 1941-42.
