       Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt:             From Grand Alliance to Dear Friends
A Presentation by Gary Augustine, Historian

Our subject this month is the story of the most important friendship of the 20th century.  Begun during World War II at a time of great peril, nourished by secret correspondence, personal meetings and conferences, this bond forever changed history and shaped the lives of hundreds of millions of people.  Like all close relationships it was not free from disagreements, yet these two men never let their differences break the alliance they forged to defeat the great evil of Nazism.

                                   “Our friendship is the rock on which I build for the future of the world.”
                - Churchill

“It is fun to be in the same decade with you.”
                - Roosevelt
