Product Description

An entertaining book, raves George Will of The Washington Post, One Christmas in Washington is the fascinating, in-depth look at one of the most crucial moments in modern history: the weeks between December 1941 and January 1942, when Churchill and Roosevelt were together at the White House, forging what turned out to be the Grand Alliance while in the background, a gloomy and confused America went about its Christmas celebrations. Herwig and Bercuson grippingly recreate the dramatic days of the Washington War Conference of 1941-42, using the diaries, meeting notes and personal letters of the key characters. One Christmas in Washington is the authoritative and emotional story of two proud and accomplished men struggling to overcome their own biases, suspicion, and hubris to create what turned out to be a war-winning alliance.
