About

If you're from the UK or America it's a fair bet you grew up believing that "we" won the Second World War. "We" being the British or Americans, depending on the location.

If you're from Russia you'll have a completely different perspective, in which the "Great Patriotic War" fought on the Eastern front is seen as the crucial intervention in stopping Hitler.

So, who really did "win" the war?

Distinguished journalist and historian Jonathan Dimbleby offers his conclusion in his new book, 'Endgame 1944: How Stalin Won the War', but acknowledges that it's a contestable issue. In this lively discussion he will explore all sides of the debate in conversation with Bath-based historian Francis Pike.

Jonathan Dimbleby is one of the UK's best-known political journalists, authors and historians. Francis Pike is a historian and economic and geopolitical adviser. He lived and worked for 20 years in Japan, China and India and has advised financial institutions, as well as governments, worldwide.
