Generally speaking, and particularly toward the end of the war, the relationship between Great Britain and the United States was far more comfortable than either of those enjoyed with the Soviet Union. Ideological, linguistic, and trade ties meant that those nations had a close affinity for each other, one that dated to the First World War and was helped by the fact that Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill became close friends. The two had actually met and discussed war aims months before Pearl Harbor, a meeting that resulted in the famous Atlantic Charter. This closeness did not always translate into policy decisions: Churchill made several strategy proposals that both Stalin and Roosevelt rejected, but certainly by the end of the war, there was a palpable split between the Anglo-American leaders and the Soviet premier.
