From the Publisher"Winston Churchill was one-half American and he journeyed to the U.S. many times over a span of sixty-six years. In Churchill and America, the incomparable Martin Gilbert tells the fascinating story of the man who embodied the trans-Atlantic alliance that still endures."
— James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers and Flyboys
"Winston Churchill, the half-American savior of Britain, had a love affair that Sir Martin Gilbert, the official biographer, is uniquely equipped to describe and discuss: that with the United States. In a masterly synthesis, Gilbert puts Churchill's never entirely easy relationships with presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower in the right context — nothing less than the survival of democracy in Europe. Churchill's encounters with the likes of Bernard Baruch, William Randolph Hearst, Ethel Barrymore and a near-lethal car on Fifth Avenue are all here, but it is the political context that is most valuable at a time when the latent beast of anti-Americanism has bestirred itself again."
— Sir Harold Evans, author of The American Century
