Tehran 1943

At the height of the Second World War, Iran played host to the leaders of the world’s great powers. Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin came to Tehran to draw up a strategy they hoped would finally end the war.  And to agree some of the terms of a post-war settlement for peace. The host country had already played a key part in the Allied war effort, earning it the title Bridge for Victory. The decisions taken in Tehran were to have a long lasting effect not just on Iran but on the future shape of the world.
