Citizens of London: The Americans Who Stood with Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hour

"Citizens of London is a great read about the small band of Americans and their courageous role in helping Britain through the darkest days of early World War II. I thought I knew a lot about that dangerous period but Lynne Olson has taught me so much more."—Tom Brokaw

"Like any good history book, this is a reminder: a reminder of how some Americans came to London and rallied to Britain's cause in 1940 and 1941—that is before Pearl Harbor, when Hitler's Germany came very close to winning the Second World War. Citizens of London is really two books in one: . . . At the same time, it is a detailed account of American/British relations through the War, another tale that is not simple." —John Lukacs, author of Five Days in London: May 1940
