|Summary, etc.:|| The brilliant young managing editor of Newsweek paints a rich portrait of a friendship that saved the twentieth-century free world. Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill shared a friendship whose like has never been seen before or since in the upper echelons of politics. Fishing, smoking, and drinking late into the night in places as far-flung as the White House, Casablanca, and Teheran, the pair talked of politics, war, family, and illness. Meacham shows what they thought of each other and how they tried to influence each other, and chronicles their key war-related decisions: where the Allies would land, who would control the atomic bomb, and what kind of world would emerge from the conflict. A stirring portrait of two very human giants.
