Hello all,

On Wednesday, January 26 at 7 p.m., we will meet to discuss Citizens of London by Lynne Olson.  The book details the lives of three Americans living in London during the Blitz and before the US entered World War II.  The most notable of these citizens is John Winant, former governor of New Hampshire, who was in many ways a tragic hero.  NH Magazine, ran an excellent article on him:

The other two citizens are Edward R. Murrow whose impartial wartime reporting from London changed as he became a strong advocate for Great Britain.  Finally, financier Averell Harriman ran the Lend-Lease program, but also promoted his own interests.

Although the book is short, the author covers a multitude of themes.  She explores the complex relationship between Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill as well as the relationship between our two countries’ military leaders. She reminds us that the Soviet Union was at one time our ally, a far cry from today. She also covers the histories of countries such as France and Poland, whose interests were often overshadowed by larger counties such as the US, Great Britain, and the Soviet Union.

We look forward to seeing you on January 26.  As usual, the discussion will be available remotely via Zoom.

Best,
Barbara Tosiano
