National Book Award winner and Pulitzer Prize winner [XXX]David McCullough is a talented historian, but as readers of his Truman and 1776 know, he's also a captivating storyteller. Both those talents snap into sharp focus in this Christmas Eve story about two world leaders contemplating a shared future. On December 24th, 1941, just seventeen days after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt met at the White House. What unfolded there was not just a session on battle strategies; it was a conference between two leaders about what the world could become after the present conflagration. Illustrated with photographs, In the Dark Streets Shineth is accompanied with a DVD of McCullough's presentation of the story at the 2009 Mormon Tabernacle Choir holiday celebration.
