    2. Well written account of the complicated but generally effective relationship between these two exceptional leaders during the most difficult years of WWII I learned a lot about Canada s critical role in this epic conflict, something that is almost always overlooked in Hollywood s depiction, where Canada is hardly ever mentioned.Tony Manera
