Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning historian Mark Stoler offers a complete diplomatic and military history of the U.S. and Britain during World War II. By examining the war and the unique relationship between Churchill and Roosevelt, Stoler emphasizes the unprecedented co-operation between Britain and the USA, but also challenges the standard Churchillian view of the ease of this historic alliance. There were many, often substantial disagreements between the two allies, and occasionally a formal agreement masked a continuing dispute in practice. This comprehensive history of the British-American effort offers a compelling new perspective on the intricacies and complexities of this unique and pivotal relationship.

Mark A. Stoler is a Professor of History at the University of Vermont. He has also been a visiting professor at the US Naval War College and the US Military Academy at West Point. He won the Distinguished Book Award from the Society for Military History for Allies and Adversaries, and is a past President of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations.

"Allies in War is an excellent reminder of the difficulties of coalition war-fare."Parameters

"Allies in War is engagingly written, balanced in it assessments, and thankfully debunks a host of myths about the most important military alliance in the modern age."David J. Gossen, Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

Synopsis:

Allies in War offers a complete diplomatic and military history of the Second World War, as it was fought by the United States and Britain. Award-winning historian Mark Stoler examines the war these two powers fought in the European and Far Eastern theatres against Germany, Italy and Japan and the nature of the Churchill-Roosevelt "special relationship."

Stoler emphasizes the unprecedented co-operation between Britain and the USA but also undermines the standard Churchillian view of the essential smoothness of this process. There were many, often substantial, disagreements between the two allies, and occasionally formal agreement masked continuing dispute in practice.

This is a fully rounded history of the British-American effort and makes compelling reading for those who want to understand the intricacies and complexities of this unique relationship. A close examination of the British and American experience of WW2.
