Yalta Conference

Thu Feb 06, 2020 5:26 pm

Hey Guys,

During WW2 Churchill, Roosevelt ans Stalin meet in Yalta to discuss the war and the aftermath.

However I was wondering for a very long time, how did the west allies managed to get there. Looking at the geopolitical map of this time, what route did they take, not risking to meet the German aircrafts?

I know the German airforce was already very weak, but still the allies had to minimize the risk of getting a encounter with German aircrafts.

Maybe someone has some information.

Thanks and cheers

David

Roosevelt sailed aboard USS Quincy (CA-71) to Malta, and continued by air to the Crimea.
