Citizens of London brings out of history's shadows the three key American players in London during WWII: Edward R. Murrow, the handsome, chain-smoking news reporter; Averell Harriman, the hard-driving millionaire who ran FDR's Lend-Lease program in London; and John G. Winant, the shy, idealistic US ambassador.

Citizens of London examines how these men fought to save Britain in its darkest hour. Each formed close ties with Winston Churchill – so much so that all became romantically involved with members of the Prime Minister's family.

Drawing on a variety of primary sources, Lynne Olson skilfully depicts the dramatic personal journeys of these men who, determined to save Britain from Hitler, helped convince a cautious FDR and reluctant American public to back the British at a critical time.

Deeply human, brilliantly researched and beautifully written, Citizens of London is a triumph.
