From the acclaimed author of Troublesome Young Men comes a major new World War II history that describes the development of America's crucial wartime alliance with England that became so decisive in defeating Hitler.
Terrific Book. A vivid recounting of WWII from the British and American perspective, with focus on critical American personalities living in London, including our Ambassador of the time (John? Wineant), Edward R. Murrow, and Avrill Harriman, and the drama of living in that city at the time. Details Roosevelt's reluctance to enter the war, as well as his relationship with Churchill, DeGaulle, and Stalin. Not the least, relates the romantic entanglements of the principals with members of Churchill's family.
