Abstract:

"Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle. They held the destiny of the Free World in their Allied hands as Nazi forces stormed through Europe in the 1940s. In public, these three preeminent statesmen stood firmly together against Hitler. They inspired their troops; they gave their nations confidence in the prospect of an Allied victory. History has justifiably made of them giants of diplomacy and unparalleled masters of strategy. Yet, in private, their relations with each other were marked by contention, distrust, duplicity, and ruthlessness, as this revelatory, new volume in the annals of World War II history dramatically shows." "In a chronicle of the dynamics and drama of international power, Simon Berthon examines an antipathy that increasingly eroded the negotiations among three of the shrewdest world leaders in the twentieth century and that significantly colored not only Allied policy during the war but also the relations of General Charles de Gaulle's France with Britain and America after it."--BOOK JACKET.
