Citizens of London

Citizens of London: The Americans who Stood with Britain in its Darkest, Finest Hour - Lynne Olson

This is about a group of American men who supported the people of England during WWII before the rest of America declared war. This book originally focuses on John Gilbert Winant, Edward R. Murrow, and Averell Harriman but it does also discuss other Americans in London. I really enjoyed reading about these men and their efforts to help England and to alert the people of America to what the British were facing. While I understand that it was important to talk about how affairs were commonplace in London during the war, I could have done without some of the portions dedicated to mentioning how Winston Churchill's daughter-in-law, Pamela, basically slept with every important British and American man to be found in London. It is fine to talk about once but to keep going back to it became a bit annoying. Besides that, this was a really interesting (and towards the end it seemed even emotional) look at London during the war and at the Americans who spent the war there.
