An early volume in a new and promising series of historians' specialized studies on the post-1945 period. This volume, based on the most up-to-date scholarship, gives a brief incisive summary of Anglo-American relations, emphasizing the early, secret and yet enduring military cooperation between the two countries despite the frequent political and economic disagreements. The author, a British historian, concludes that for all the vicissitudes of an increasingly uneven relationship there was a special link based on common interests and traditional affinities.
