Roosevelt and Churchill, Their Secret Wartime Correspondence By: Francis Loewenheim, Harold Langley and Manfred Jonas Pages: 3-103 This book (based on the Roosevelt/Churchill correspondence) speaks of the personal, military, political and diplomatic relationship between Roosevelt and Churchill in pages 3 through 76. Then it introduces in five parts the actual personal messages and notes spanning from September 1939 through April of 1945. This report focuses on the relationship of the two men (based on the author's research and assumptions) and the first dozen or so of their 'messages and notes'.The two men met once in 1918, with no great impressions made, and had no direct contact for the next 20 years.

However, they both were not so headstrong as to not realize a certain amount of dependency on each other's strength. Their ability to speak frankly to each other and their underlying fondness and respect for each other allowed them to communicate effectively. The relationship was a political one and their meetings were usually centered around the politics and strategy of the war. But there were many instances both observed and in their writings, that showed the personal side of their friendship. Both men brought insight from experiences in WWI. Churchill, learning from his defeat at Gallipoli as First Lord of the Admiralty, and from the tremendous blood shed of the British soldiers in the trenches. Roosevelt seemed to have a knack for strategy and forethought during his service in the Navy in WWI. He also brought insight into the region having traveled through Western Europe on a bicycle while...
