Over ten days in January 1943, Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt and their military advisors met in secret in Casablanca, Morocco for what is now known as the Casablanca Conference to discuss the strategy for the remainder of the war. Notably, Joseph Stalin received an invitation but was engaged in a major offensive against Germany. Global Forum members are invited to an exclusive look into James Conroy’s in depth book, The Devils Will Get No Rest: FDR, Churchill, and the Plan that Won the War, about the master class strategies by world leaders who overcame their differences to forge a war-winning plan. Moderated by Council board member Talmage Boston.
