Winston Churchill had a deep connection to the United States: His mother was born in Brooklyn, he visited the United States more often than any other senior British politician, he forged what he termed the “special relationship” with Franklin Roosevelt, and at one point he even hoped for a joint Anglo-American citizenship that would foster a union of the English-speaking peoples. He took abuse from British politicians for being so profoundly pro-American. Yet was there a limit? Andrew Roberts examines Churchill’s reactions when the interests of the United States he admired clashed with those of the British Empire he loved.

Andrew Roberts, Roger and Martha Mertz Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, is the author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny.
