About this book

Introduction

It was Winston Churchill who, in his speech at Fulton, Missouri, advocated a 'special relationship between the British Commonwealth...and the United States...the continuance of intimate relationships between our military advisers, leading to the common study of potential dangers'. Through the eyes of Churchill, Roosevelt and their successors, Sir Robin Renwick traces the development of the Anglo-American relationship since the desperate summer of 1940 and the part it played in the shaping of the post-war world. Detecting once again a whiff of the 1930s in the air, Sir Robin concludes that, as one of the ties that bind Europe and North America, the relationship remains an important one, and not only to Britain and the United States. There are many on both sides of the Atlantic who will think that the world would have been poorer without it. Nor has the world yet assumed so secure and predictable a form as to render it redundant.
