The True Story of the Lend Lease. Part 2

Providing security was the main problem facing the Allies in delivering supplies to Russia under the Lend-Lease programme. Several main routes were worked out.

Paul Tadich reconstructs how the programme really worked in the next installment of our series: The True Story of Lend-Lease.
