Recommended for: anyone who is interested in WWII or world leaders
Read in October, 2007

I was absolutely captivated by this book. It turned my preconceived ideas about FDR and Churchill inside out. This is a fantastic character study of these two men and it their actions during the time of WWII reveal so much about them. I especially like how this book focuses on them as individuals as well as their relationship, which was fairly intimate, if a bit one-sided most of the time.
