In history classes across the United States, students have studied World War II in great detail…the most historic battles, historic figures, and especially the most historic outcomes. What many students haven’t learned however, is that the beginning of the various Peace Treaties which would come to officially end WWII and decide the fate of all involved, were first drafted in the Towers of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
