Product Description

At the great memorial service for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in April of 1945, Winston Churchill wept. The world had lost a formidable leader, and Churchill had lost a colleague, confidant, and friend. In this eminently readable book, literary critic Keith Alldritt illuminates a potent, colorful relationship its ups and downs, conflicts and comings together, set against the violent tide of World War II.
Filled with personal nuance androunded in historical detail, The Greatest of Friends follows the dynamic friendship from the first encounter (which occurred during World War I, when Roosevelt was undersec- retary for the U.S. Navy; it did not go well). Alldritt gives us a complex, surprising story of mutual admiration, confidence, humor, jealousy, disagreement, friction, and affection between two of history's most powerful and charismatic political leaders.

5.0 out of 5 stars Details the friendship between Roosevelt and Churchill. 26 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on
A very good and readable book that details the friendship between two of the greatest leaders in the twentieth century. Both the President and the Prime Minister had huge egos, and were known to be difficult, but the friendship that developed between them helped the Allies win the war with Germany, Italy, and Japan. Many interesting stories of the personal lives of both Roosevelt and Churchill. The friendship that developed between these two great men helped in the post war world.
