Winston Churchill's blood was American. His father was of noble descent as was Winston who was born at Blenheim Palace. Winston Churchill's father was British but his rather feisty mother was born in the borough of Brooklyn, U.S.A.
Winston first visited America when he was 21 on October 21, 1895. He was on his way to report the happenings of the Spanish War in Cuba. He was met in New York City by his mother's illicit lover Bourke Cockran who entertained Winston. Winston proceeded to Cuba to report on the hostilities in Cuba.
Later in 1900, Winston went on a lecture tour of the East Coast and onto the Midwest in Chicago. Later during World War I Churchill recognized that the future of the English Speaking Peoples was determined in the actions of America during World War I. Without the help of America the Great War would have been lost.
Churchill continued his visits to the U.S.A. His friendship with Charlie Chaplin and William Randolph Hearst continued in his so called Wilderness Years. His unfortunate accident in Manhattan in 1931 along with his loss of fortune in the N.Y.S..E. are indeed matters of legend.
Later after the Battle of Britain, the meeting at Placentia Bay with FDR stirs the participants to a great Anglican-American Alliance of magical proportions.
Down the road Winston seduces FDR in doing the Lend Lease. Further, FDR succumbs to help Great Britain in all of their efforts. At this point Winston was truly the number one Patrician of the free world.
After the War Winston goes on to warn the world of the increasing Soviet menace. Winston was a true British Politician of the Imperial kind. But he was also of the American ilk!! Long live Winston!! 5 Stars no problem!!!

I don't think it would be possible for Sir Martin to write other than a superb book about Churchill if he tried. And this latest volume is no exception. The only thing better than reading it is to hear the author, as I did recently at the National Archives, speak about the book and take questions. One of the most remarkable things about Gilbert is that despite the fact he has written so extensively on WC, he still manages to add something new or a novel perspective.

I think if a single theme dominates the book, it is that WC fought a life-long battle against British anti-Americanism. In the mid-1930's, WC began using the expression "English-speaking Peoples," which was another device to build unity between the two countries. I had assumed the book would begin with WWI, but I was very wrong in that regard. Rather, Gilbert begins by looking at WC's parents, and particularly the American connections of his mother, Jenny Jerome. WC makes his first visit to America in 1895. Each visit thereafter (some 17 or so) is discussed, and an important bonus feature is an appendix containing maps of WC's various U.S. travels.

But the book is about far more than visits. It is about the manifold way WC interacted with Americans over nearly 70 years, sometimes to his benefit, other times resulting in frustration. For example, WC always maintained that the U.S. refusal to enter the League of Nations played a major role in the rise of Nazism and the need to fight a second great war. There were also constant negotiations during and after both wars relative to British debt and the means of repayment. Gilbert is particularly effective in discussing the 1930's period when the European war was about to commence and how WC interacted with FDR in trying to secure necessary materials and induce the U.S. to join in the battle. The discussion of the "special link" between FDR and WC is acutely perceptive and much attention is devoted to it. A relationship full of affection and joint success, but also marred by fundamental disagreements, such as the priority of the cross-Channel invasion and whether Ike should race to beat the Russians to Berlin.

The points of increasing stress between WC and the U.S. are interesting to say the least. Among the most pressing issues were: (a) how to treat Stalin; (b) intervening in Greece; (c) the puzzle of Poland; and (d) the priority of taking Prague. Always, there are disputes about the enormous wartime and postwar British debt and whether the Americans were trying to "skin" the Brits. There is no doubt that Churchill paid a steep price at home for his heavy reliance upon the "special relationship," and he also exasperated subsequent presidents Truman and Ike. Nonetheless, this is almost a love story--Churchill and his dedication to Anglo-American interests and dominance.

Interesting reading about an interesting man with a lot of behind the scenes communications between he, and Roosevelt during WWII.

Not a book for the person seeking to investigate the sweep of Winston Churchill's grand and worthy life. Instead, it is a plodding factual history of almost every aspect of his interaction with the United States. Sir Martin does not provide much in the way of interpretation nor does he very often cite the views of others towards Mr. Churchill's pro-American policies; almost all is mined directly from the written articles, letters, cables, or speeches of Winston Churchill.

If he ever mentioned America, it is likely in this book. I can not imagine people from other countries enjoying this particular effort. And, I think a great many here will find this book, with its repetitious statements of the vital need for a close relationship between the two countries, deadening after a full reading.

Gilbert is a very good writer and no one knows the Churchill story better than him. A very well annotated book that flows along over the years with interesting story lines for the various periods in Churchill's life.

The actual content was very interesting; but there were some problems with the CD's; there were two substantial bad sections.
