But this is not 2003 and Iraq, but 1940 and the start of World War II. And, in an inversion of 2003, this is the story of the USA coming to the aid of Britain.

September 1940 - a whirlwind of events that saw the swift fall of France followed by the evacuation of Dunkirk, air raids over London and the Battle of Britain, with Britains entire safety and independence threatened as never before in modern times. Though the USA did not formally enter the war until after Pearl Harbor in 1941, as Moss shows, it was these crucial 19 weeks that swung the US from a position of defiant isolationism to a position of committed support for Britains cause against Nazi Germany, and ultimately forged Americas long-term interventionist role in the world.

point of view of both the policymakers and the ordinary citizenry. It follows closely the developing relationship between Roosevelt and Churchill, Roosevelts battle for the hearts and minds of his countrymen, and the far-reaching consequences for Britains future role in the world, the seeds of which were irrevocably sewn during this brief, crucial epoch.
