An authoritative and entertaining portrait of the fateful friendship that was destined to save Western civilization. Drawing extensively on his intimate kwledge of the two men's correspondence, Mr. Kimball shows beyond all doubt how critical their combined leadership was to the eventual Allied victory and how it laid the groundwork for the peace that followed. A compelling account, as penetrating as it is lively. -Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.
