Months before Pearl Harbor, Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt held a secret meeting of the Alliance. The two leaders met on a warship off the coast of northern Canada to discuss about strategy.

From 9th to 12th August 1941 they gathered for the Atlantic Conference, they worked together to frustrate the Nazis. It was also the first time Churchill and Roosevelt met, according to the BBC, "the friendship forged in Placentia Bay formed a firm foundation for a series of crucial strategic conferences during the war."

The couple were drafting what is now known as the Atlantic Charter, an agreement between the two world powers on what the world would look like after the war was won. The two leaders issued their joint statement on this day in 1941.
