Description
In this biography of a singular friendship, Jon Meacham considers the two men who piloted the free world to victory in World War II. U.S. president Franklin Roosevelt and British prime minister Winston Churchill spent enormous amounts of time together and exchanged nearly 2,000 messages. Amid cocktails and cigars, and often in secret, they met in places as far-flung as Washington, Hyde Park, and Casablanca, discussing not only the war but also the burden of command, their health, their wives, and their children. Meacham's sources—including unpublished letters of Roosevelt's secret love Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd, the papers of Pamela Churchill Harriman, and interviews with the few remaining witnesses who were in Roosevelt's and Churchill's joint company—shed light on the characters of both men.

"Meacham's engaging account argues that personal bonds between leaders are crucial to international politics."—The New Yorker

"This is at once an important, insightful, and highly entertaining portrait of two men at the peak of their powers who, through their genius, common will, and uncommon friendship, saved the world. Jon Meacham's Franklin and Winston takes its place in the front ranks of all that has been written about these two great men."—Tom Brokaw
