Description Citizens of London de Lynne Olson:

An enthralling, behind-the-scenes account of how the United States forged its wartime alliance with Britain. Citizens of London brings out of history's shadows the three key American players in London: Edward R. Murrow, the handsome, chain-smoking news reporter- Averell Harriman, the hard-driving millionaire who ran FDR's Lend-Lease programme in London- and John G. Winant, the shy, idealistic US ambassador. Citizens of London examines how these men fought to save Britain in its darkest hour. Each formed close ties with Winston Churchill - so much so that all became romantically involved with members of the prime minister's family. Drawing on a variety of primary sources, Lynne Olson skilfully depicts the dramatic personal journeys of these men who, determined to save Britain from Hitler, helped convince a cautious FDR and reluctant American public to back the British at a critical time. Deeply human, brilliantly researched, and beautifully written, Citizens of London is a triumph. Lynne Olson is the former White House correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. In addition to 2010's Citizens of London, she is most recently the author of Those Angry Days: Roosevelt, Lindbergh, and America's fight over WWII 1939-1941. She is also the author of Troublesome Young Men: the rebels who brought Churchill to power and helped save England and Freedom's Daughters: the unsung heroines of the civil rights movement from 1830 to 1970, and is a co-author of two other books.
