About this book

It was Winston Churchill who, in his speech at Fulton, Missouri, advocated a 'special relationship between the British Commonwealth...and the United States...the continuance of intimate relationships between our military advisers, leading to the common study of potential dangers'. Through the eyes of Churchill, Roosevelt and their successors, Sir Robin Renwick traces the development of the Anglo-American relationship since the desperate summer of 1940 and the part it played in the shaping of the post-war world. Detecting once again a whiff of the 1930s in the air, Sir Robin concludes that, as one of the ties that bind Europe and North America, the relationship remains an important one, and not only to Britain and the United States. There are many on both sides of the Atlantic who will think that the world would have been poorer without it. Nor has the world yet assumed so secure and predictable a form as to render it redundant.

Reviews

Of the former Ambassador, Sir Robin Renwick:

'Ambassador extraordinaire.' - Guardian

'Simply the best.' - Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, US Department of State

'A remarkable Ambassador.' - General Colin Powell

'Fighting with Allies matches the outstanding service of the author as one of Britain's most distinguished ambassadors to Washington. Sir Robin explores with erudition and flair the subtle and complex special relationship between the United States and Britain, so indispensable during the Cold War. He shows its relevance to the post-Cold War world as well as the need for adaptation. I greatly enjoyed this book.' - Henry A. Kissinger

'The Anglo-American alliance is the rock on which dictators have foundered throughout this century. A great story.' - President George Bush
