This wonderfully readable World War II history brings to life the development of
America's crucial wartime alliance with England that became so decisive in defeating
Hitler. Olson builds a dramatic narrative by focusing on the leading role played by three
dynamic American men--Averell Harriman, Edward R. Murrow, and John Gilbert
Winant--in forging the two countries'"special relationship."
I don’t live in London anymore and I couldn’t afford it even if I wanted to, but the city beloved by Winant and Murrow will always mean as much to me as it did to them and their deep attachment to it is perhaps the strongest thing that resonates from this wonderful book.
