HTTP is a more generic protocol which is the base (mostly) for the web and used to transfer the SOAP messages themselves. SOAP is a protocol to implement web services to allow interoperability. And WSDL is used to describe the web services and its functionality to the outside world. I suggest you read more about them in the official specifications (WDL, SOAP, HTTP)

I would suggest reading the Web Service FAQ page here at the ranch before jumping into the official specs. The specs can go into overwhelming detail - not good for an overview.
