Franklin and Winston is a very intimate portrait of the friendship between two of the most respected people in the world. This book describes their friendship from the very beginning all the way to the last time the two meet, it describes the ups and downs of their friendship and what they truly thought about each other and with the war. The book not only gives personal accounts of the two but also the view of their wife¿s, their family¿s and their closest friends. Franklin and Winston shows both men in a different light, than I have ever seen the two portrayed. The depth that Meacham shows is amazing. Franklin and Winston is an excellent portrayal of the two. I loved the book and have never read anything that went this in-depth of their very unique friendship. The chapters are a little long, and the book is slow in some places but once you get started it is hard to put down. Anyone who is at all intrigued by either man should read this, it gave so much insight that you feel that you personally have met the two.

There are no words to express the depth of my admiration for Churchill. If possible, it grew even deeper while reading this excellent book. It is true that the free world today owes its existence to this valiant and gallant man. Roosevelt, too, rose to great heights and gave everything, including his life, to free the world of tyranny, but Churchill was the grandest of the two. He never veered from his path, thank God.

From a lover of history and biographies, this is a fascinating story of the relationship between the two men most responsible for saving the world in the 20th century.

Very good read. A Lot of insight that went into the tough decision making that had to be made at that time.

This book is an eye opener...magnificently written. There was something magical beteen these 2 friendships...that without these two men ...the outcome of WWII might have been completely different for the whole world. I do beliebe that these two friendships were pre ordained. Thank God, for us, that it was!

This epic relationship lasted because of each other's enduring qualities rooted in patience and perpetuity.

Important subject and compelling idea of how a nuanced successful friendship, changed the world. The characters are interesting, to say the least... but they are drawn too faintly as the characters take a back seat to the interplay between them. The results make for some tedium; a disappointment.

After reading this book, I arrived at two conclusions. First, the book should have had the title 'Winston and Friend'. The book had much more to do with Churchill than Roosevelt, with FDR serving as a backdrop for Churchill. Second, the book made me conclude that Churchill was the greater man. In fact, nowhere in this book did I find any indication of Roosevelt's greatness. Meacham painted him as somewhat petty and not really a leader. I did not find this a very enlightening book.
