How Stalin Won World War II

The excellent PBS/BBC documentary World War II: Behind Closed Doors explains how Stalin, having actively contributed to the outbreak of the war, also got the biggest prize at the end of it by the ruthless and immoral manipulation of all parts involved (on the right, Stalin as TIME's "Man of the Year" in 1942).

The documentary also depicts a somewhat dictatorial, sometimes unethical FDR, in contrast with a more virtuous and human Churchill.

Here's a good clip from the documentary:
