“Focusing on the role of the three Americans who played key roles in ensuring the effective cooperation between Britain and the US in WWII -- Averell Harriman, Edward R. Murrow, and U.S. ambassador Gilbert Winant -- Lynne Olson has written a sterling history of a little-known aspect of the war. Citizens of London makes gripping reading, detailing the obstacles that could easily have prevented the alliance ever coming together, and drawing on an impressive array of diaries, interviews and personal letters to reveal the extent of the efforts of their political rivals to overcome them.”
