Summary
"Four months before Pearl Harbor, Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt met in secret aboard ship in a secluded Newfoundland harbor. This was the first summit conference of World War II." "In this revised edition of his classic study, Theodore Wilson has expanded and updated the narrative. Drawing upon a wealth of primary sources made available since the first edition, he has added nearly forty percent new material. He recaptures the drama and color of the shipboard discussions, establishing the meeting at Argentia as a landmark in the history of war diplomacy. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
