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.
