‘De Gaulle is a very dangerous threat to us,’ accused Roosevelt. ‘De Gaulle is a man opportunist, unscrupulous, ambitious to the last decree’ complained Churchill. ‘We must have no relationship with the Anglo-Saxons under any circumstances and at whatever cost’, warned de Gaulle.Hatred, rivalry, and hasty judgements underpinned a unique emotional triangle, as well as occasional outbreaks of mutual respect and love. With extensive research and newly uncovered wartime papers, Allies at War provides an extraordinary insight into these complex men and the post-war legacy of their embittered alliance.Allies at War is particularly good at showing us how events looked at the time, rather than how they would later seem.
