A compelling look at two leaders who held the world’s fate in their hands — and the holiday visit that sealed a friendship and steered the course of World War II.At the height of World War II, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill held an extraordinary month-long visit, during which they planned the success of the Allied powers and strategized a continuing peace for when the war ended. Moving from witty banter to gravely serious discussions — amid a traditional public celebration of the Christmas holiday — the two cemented a unique bond as they decided how to confront a menace that threatened all of civilization. Thanks to the skillful work of author Douglas Wood and illustrator Barry Moser, the story of this remarkable time can be shared with a whole new generation.Back matter includes; an afterword, an author’s note, and a bibliography.
This compelling offering gives a clue as to what it was like to be in the seat of power, watching the world burn and trying to stop it.—Booklist (starred review)
