Roosevelt and Churchill: Men of Secrets
An intriguing look behind the congenial façade of Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, revealing how each jealously guarded knowledge from the other in pursuit of separate national interests. Theirs was a unique relationship, based on linked national histories and partially-shared nationality- Churchill was half-American-similarities in class and education, a special love for the navy, and a common belief in the superiority of Anglo-Saxon institutions. Above all, it was cemented by shared enemies: Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. On these foundations Roosevelt and Churchill constructed a fighting alliance unlike any other in history.
At the heart of this special relationship, hidden by layers of secrecy, was an extraordinary and far-reaching – although far from complete- sharing of intelligence and a fascination for clandestine operations. This was the most sensitive touchstone of their mutual trust, and a responsive barometer of both suspicion and discord.
