Summary
"In this book, Martin Gilbert tells the story of Winston Churchill's connection to America, a relationship that resulted in an Anglo-American alliance that has stood at the center of international relations for more than a century." "Sir Martin Gilbert was appointed Churchill's official biographer in 1968 and has ever since been collecting archival and personal documentation that explores every twist and turn of Churchill's relationship with the United States, revealing the golden thread running through it of friendship and understanding despite many setbacks and disappointments. Drawing on this extensive store of Churchill's own words - in his private letters, his articles and speeches, and press conferences and interviews given to American journalists on his numerous journeys throughout the United States - Gilbert paints a portrait of the Anglo-American relationship that began at the turn of the last century."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
An account of the former British prime minister's seventy-year relationship with the United States describes how he laid the foundation of a century-long alliance between the countries and established a policy of cooperation that continues to this day
