Historian Andrew Roberts talked about his book Masters and Commanders: How Four Titans Won the War in the West, 1941-1945 (Harper, 2009; Harper Perennial, 2010). In his book he describes the relationships between the political and military leaders of the United States and Britain during World War II. Mr. Roberts profiles Prime Minister Winston Churchill, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, General Sir Alan Brooke, and General George C. Marshall and describes their strategic conversations and debates. The author utilized recently discovered accounts from Churchill’s war cabinet meetings and a collection of private papers from many of his peers to reconstruct the Allies war plans. He responded to questions from members of the audience at the seventh annual Roosevelt Reading Festival. It was held by the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in the Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center in Hyde Park, New York. close
