UAPL Book Circle: Citizens of London by Lynne Olson

Join us for an informal discussion of Citizens of London: The Americans Who Stood With Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hour by Lynne Olson. Here is the behind-the-scenes story of how the United States forged its wartime alliance with Britain, told from the perspective of three key American players in London: Edward R. Murrow, Averell Harriman, and John Gilbert Winant. Drawing from a variety of primary sources, Olson skillfully depicts the dramatic personal journeys of these men who, determined to save Britain from Hitler, helped convince a cautious Franklin Roosevelt and a reluctant American public to support the British at a critical time.
