|U.S. Army Signal Corps. Casablanca Conference, 1943
Roosevelt and Churchill are shown here, at the end of the Casablanca Conference, as they announce to the press that the Allies would accept only the unconditional surrender of their enemies as the war's outcome. Churchill was never entirely comfortable with this decision, which some would blame for prolonging the war. He asked the assembled journalists, however, to present a "picture of unity, thoroughness, and integrity of the political chiefs" to their readers.
