At the world faced the gathering storm of the deadliest conflict in human history, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States, and Winston Churchill, wartime Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, recognized each other as vital allies. Under the menacing threat of world domination by Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany and the military power of Japan in Asia, Roosevelt and Churchill's urgent need for each other's support soon developed into an unbreakable bond. Together they steered the world through the treacherous times of World War II between 1939 and 1945 and emerged victorious. During those dark days, their friendship became crucial not only to each other's survival but for the the very existence of the world as we know it today. This is the story of Franklin D.
