    It is well known that Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher were close allies and kindred political spirits. During their eight overlapping years in office, the U.S. president and the U.K. prime minister worked together to promote lower taxes, deregulation, free trade, and an aggressive stance against the Soviet Union. But according to Nicholas Wapshott, the Reagan/Thatcher relationship was much deeper than an alliance of mutual interests.

    Story

    I agree with another reviewer disappointed in the first section of the book on the early lives and careers of President Reagan and Prime Minister Thatcher. The second section picked up as it examined their times in office, their cooperation, their conflicts. But much of the story reads like a society page in the newspaper. The president gave Thatcher a Steuben eagle. A concern was picking just the right horse for the president to ride with the queen. And the endless number of notes and messages of mutual support. Yes it is all true, and yes it was their relationship, and yes it makes for an uninteresting tale. But yes I did learn about the specifics of their intertwined time in office.
