The Big Three was a term used to refer collectively to the leaders of the Britain, the United States, and the Soviet Union during the Second World War. For most of this period the Big Three were Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin, but in 1945 Roosevelt died and was succeeded by Harry Truman, and Churchill lost the 1945 election and was succeeded by Clement Attlee.

In recent years the term refers to the three largest US-owned Automobile companies, General Motors (GM), Ford, and Chrysler.

Thus Fox News headlines on Dec. 4, 2008, reported: "Detroit's Big Three Consider Bailout With Strings Attached; The Big Three automakers face a divided set of lawmakers in the first round of hearings on Capitol Hill, amid warnings that the $34 billion they are requesting is just the beginning."[1]
