"A dazzling narrative...elegant...history on the grandest scale, embracing a world-wide cast of characters and all the continents....All the heroes and villains of the day before yesterday are alive again in these pages--particularly Churchill, Stalin, DeGaulle, and Chiang."--New York Times Book Review
"A book that will become a landmark in its field, indispensable to scholars and critical to our understanding of American foreign policy."--The New Republic
