Description

In Potsdam, amid the ruins of a vanquished Germany, the new American President, Harry Truman, matches wits and wills with the aging Winston Churchill (soon to be voted out of office) and a cynical Joseph Stalin.

In the Pacific, Americans closing in on Japan's home islands fend off waves of kamikaze attacks, even as a massive U.S. buildup for the final assault on the Japanese homeland (code name "Olympic")is being readied, with plans that calculate appalling casualties.
