Publisher's Summary

An intriguing look behind the congenial facade of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, this work reveals how each leader jealously guarded knowledge from the other in pursuit of separate national interests.

David Stafford's masterly study shows that at the heart of the complicated - but always dynamic - relationship between Roosevelt and Churchill was an extraordinary fascination with clandestine operations. On this foundation the two leaders constructed a fighting alliance unlike any other in history.

Stafford is a former diplomat who has written extensively on intelligence history, and The Independent calls him "an expert in Britain's wartime intelligence operations."

    "first rate history"

    I thought this book was extremely well researched and well read. Anyone with an interest in intelligence matters and the history of current intelligence services will find this rewarding.

    "Not fit to be heard"

    All the enjoyment of listening to Carl Kasell (of NPR) read a business prospectus. (With apologies to Carl.)
