"...this book is solid and well researched...Smith has used a wealth of private and public sources, mostly British, but many American as well, to buttress his story. He well illustrates the logistical problems of the alliance and the interaction between civilians and the military in achieving hard-fought consensus over military strategy during the war." The Journal of American History "I highly recommend the book as a significant contribution to both military history and the history of the Second World War, its wide scope highlights a number of subjects...Smith's excellent footnotes and comprehensive bibliography will provide scholars with a valuable guide to future studies."
