9780156004701: Churchill's Grand Alliance: The Anglo-American Special

The Anglo-American alliance was the cornerstone of Churchill's policy after 1940, and from then on, the "special relationship" has always been a feature of Anglo-American relations. This study, based upon extensive work in American and British archives, strips away the myth surrounding this subject to reveal the unsentimental relaity. Churchill carried on the war in 1940 because he believed that the American help could save the British Empire, but this book argues that his faith was misplacecd. In the post-war period British politicians sought to escape from the uncomfortable reality that the war had made them and American "pensioner".

Book Description Mariner Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 400 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.The New York Times Book Review called John Charmleys previous book on Winston Churchill entertaining, informative, and infuriating. With equally impressive scholarship, eloquence, and wit, Charmley now turns to the Anglo-American special relationship that was the cornerstone of Churchills foreign policy, ruthlessly stripping away the myth to reveal the unsentimental reality of the Churchill years and beyond, from 1940 to 1957. Churchill carried on the war because of his misguided faith that U. S. help could be enlisted to save the British Empire, contends Charmley. President Roosevelt, however, sought an end to imperialism and thus entered the war only belatedly, ensuring that Britian would end the war weak and dependent on America. And Britian did indeed become a U. S. pensioner-a reality dramatically confirmed in 1956, when American pressure led to the removal of Prime Minister Anthony Eden. With vivid assessments of Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Churchill, and Eden, John Charmley brilliantly continues his though-provoking-and sometimes infuriating-ways.
