Editorial Reviews

Review

“Engaging and original, rich in anecdote and analysis, this is a terrific work of history.”—Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of American Lion

Citizens of London is a great read about the small band of Americans and their courageous role in helping Britain through the darkest days of early World War II. I thought I knew a lot about this dangerous period, but Lynne Olson has taught me so much more.”—Tom Brokaw, author of The Greatest Generation

“A deeply inspiring chronicle of the special relationship between America and Britain when it mattered most.”—Chris Matthews, anchor, MSNBC’s
Hardball
 
“Ingenious history . . . All three men were colorful, larger-than-life figures, and Olson’s absorbing narrative does them justice.”—
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“An engaging history . . . a vibrant city fueled by courage and resolve.”—
The Christian Science Monitor
 
“An original and fascinating book.”—
Lincoln Journal Star
 
“[A] cracking good read.”—
New York Post

Her earlier books include three New York Times bestsellers: Madame Fourcade’s Secret War: The Daring Young Woman Who Led France’s Largest Spy Network Against the Nazis; Those Angry Days: Roosevelt, Lindbergh, and America’s Fight Over World War II, 1939-1941, and Citizens of London: The Americans Who Stood with Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hour.
