Overview

Early in 1937, the enterprising owner of an independent press service called Cooperation made Winston Churchill an irresistible offer. He would place Churchill's articles on current world events in major newspapers across Europe - and for significantly more money than Churchill was making through his present agent. So began a profitable business relationship that grew over time into an enduring personal friendship. This book chronicles that relationship through the entire body of correspondence between Winston Churchill and Emery Reves. It preserves a compelling record of how each man used the other's talents to forward a cause that passionately engaged them both - the spread of democratic ideals in a post-totalitarian world.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reves was the owner of an independent press service and in 1937 offered to place Churchill's articles on current world events in major newspapers across Europe for significantly more money than his present agent. The profitable relationship grew into an enduring friendship, which is here documented by their letters. Gilbert is Churchill's official biographer and provides notes explaining obscure references.
