9781849549790: Fighting With Allies: America and Britain in Peace and War

Through the eyes of Churchill, Roosevelt, and their successors, Robin Renwick traces the development of the Anglo-American relationship and the part it played in shaping the post-war world.

Detecting once again a whiff of the 1930s in the air, he concludes that, as one of the ties that binds Europe and North America, the relationship remains an important one, and not only to Britain and the United States.

Robin William Renwick, Baron Renwick of Clifton KCMG is a crossbench peer in the House of Lords. He enjoyed a long career at the Foreign Office culminating in a posting as British ambassador to the United States between 1991 and 1995.

Book Description Biteback Publishing, United Kingdom, 2017. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this new and forward-looking edition of Fighting with Allies, former British Ambassador to the US Robin Renwick describes the roller-coaster history of the special relationship between Britain and the United States first established by Churchill and Roosevelt in the desperate summer of 1940, exploring the profound changes it has undergone, especially in the past two decades, the increasing disparity of power and the extent to which it remains relevant in a very different world today.Through the eyes of successive presidents and prime ministers, he describes in vivid detail how each side viewed the other during successive crises, both in the world at large and in the relationship itself - most recently over the Falklands, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan - and outlines some lessons to be learned from those interventions.Through its extraordinary history, full of outsized characters, the alliance has shown remarkable endurance, based on a solid foundation of common interest.With the ground shifting on both sides of the Atlantic, and Britain s role in the world about to be changed radically by Brexit, the special relationship nevertheless is far from having outlived its usefulness today.
