Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship

Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill were the greatest leaders of the Greatest Generation. In Franklin and Winston, Jon Meacham explores the fascinating relationship between the two men who
piloted the free world to victory in World War II. It was a crucial friendship, and a unique one–a
president and a prime minister spending enormous amounts of time together (113 days during the war)
and exchanging nearly two thousand messages. Amid cocktails, cigarettes, and cigars, they met, often secretly, in places as far-flung as Washington, Hyde Park, Casablanca, and Teheran, talking to each
other of war, politics, the burden of command, their health, their wives, and their children. Meacham has written the definitive account of the most remarkable friendship of the modern age.  (490 pp) Nonfiction
