An insight to the personalities

by floridascouse on Jul 16, 2009

Meacham quite candidly states in his introduction that this is not another history of WW II, but his attempt to portray the relationship between these two men. I think he succeeds in his "Intimate Portrait", this book provides further insight into the character and personality of both men and is interesting reading for any who remember or realise the impact they had on their time and even until today.

Excellent!

by Jim80 on Jun 14, 2007

The author does a great job bringing FDR and Churchill, two larger than life figures in history, alive. No stuffy scholarship here although the sources cited are extensive and the historical context is well done. You develop a real feel for both men, foibles and all. The contrast between the two is well developed. The final pages about FDR's death and Churchill's reaction brought tears to my eyes. I started reading it from a loan from a friend but I liked it so much I bought my own copy. Compares favorably with Doris Kearns Goodwin's NO ORDINARY TIMES which I consider one of the great books in American history.
