Notes: By May 1943 Axis troops in North Africa had surrendered, leaving the allies free to concentrate on the European arena. In December 1943 Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin met at Tehran to discuss a joint strategy for defeating Nazi Germany. Churchill and Roosevelt finally agreed to the opening of a second front in Europe, planned for May 1944. By January 1944 a soviet offensive had relieved the 900 day Siege of Leningrad. German troops retreated. It was becoming clear that the Germans' terrifying stranglehold was being broken, and a mood of optimism was emerging.
