Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
As former naval administratorsRoosevelt was assistant secretary of the navy in World War I and Churchill twice served as first lord of the admiraltyboth World War II leaders had a special affection for and interest in their navies. Hough describes the close Anglo-American cooperation during the Battle of the Atlantic, Operation Torch, the Normandy invasion and other campaigns, showing how their success was due in large part to the cordial relationship between the two men and their grasp of naval imperatives. Both were convinced that nothing could save the Western democracies if the war at sea was lost. Hough compares the leaders' relations with their respective naval commands: Roosevelt enjoyed harmony with his admirals while Churchill, who distrusted the breed, had constant problems. A lively and interesting account. February 17
Library Journal
This work has a clever and useful concept: a comparative analysis of these two world leaders from the perspective of their attitudes toward sea power. Ideally, this would be a significant contribution to an overwritten fieldparticularly if presented in the context of Britain and the United States as maritime states. Hough's anecdotal approach and derivative research instead result in a poorly integrated series of set-piece narratives centered on two unusual men sharing a common pleasure in ``messing around with boats.'' Specialists will find the book superficial, and Hough's epigrammatic evaluations of people and events may well mislead the general reader. Not recommended. Dennis E. Showalter, History Dept., Colorado Coll., Colorado Springs
