Thursday, April 3, 2014. Citizens of London: The Americans Who
Stood With Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hours, by Lynne Olson.
"Citizens of London"
is the story of the American firebrands who broke rank with popular opinion and
stood shoulder-to-shoulder with England during the bleak infancy of World War
II. Author Lynne Olson more than lives up to the critical acclaim of her
last book, ''Troublesome Young Men,"
by exploring the origins of an Anglo-American alliance that helped turn the
tide during the most widespread conflict in history. Although other
"Yanks" rallied against the hesitancy of their isolationist
government before Pearl Harbor, few matched the impact of U.S. ambassador John
Gilbert Winant, businessman Averell Harriman, and broadcaster Edward
R. Murrow. Each recognized the insidious dangers of Nazi aggression, and
with the help of meticulous research, Olson elucidates the challenges they
endured to help bridge political and cultural gaps between the United States
and Britain. At a time when the English capital was described as
"swimming in the full tide of history, "Citizens of London"
echoes Tennyson in its tribute to those who strove, sought, and refused to
yield. --Dave Callanan
