    The Allies by Winston Groom

    A superb history of the three leaders who guided the world during WWII: Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin. Not only did these three political giants direct the strategy of the war, they contributed to the future direction of the world by decisions made at the war’s conclusion. Although I have read books and viewed movies that detailed specific battles and places, Groom did a lovely job weaving a story that pulled the events together into a broad p

    A superb history of the three leaders who guided the world during WWII: Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin. Not only did these three political giants direct the strategy of the war, they contributed to the future direction of the world by decisions made at the war’s conclusion. Although I have read books and viewed movies that detailed specific battles and places, Groom did a lovely job weaving a story that pulled the events together into a broad perspective which I thoroughly enjoyed. And as I have come to expect in all his histories, the anecdotes were fascinating and I learned new details about the characters and the events in play. A powerful story!

    The Allies: Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin, and the Unlikely Alliance That Won World War II by Winston Groom is a non-fiction book which recounts how Russia became and unlikely ally with the United States and England during World War II. Mr. Groom is a historian and novelist.

    History, to me, is fascinating not only because of the big picture, but also of the little stories which make up the headlines. We all heard about the three leaders mentioned in The Allies: Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin, and the Unlikely Alliance That Won World War II by Winston Groom, the author goes about telling the reader how, and why, they decided to become allies despite many differences.

    Russia did not have the same geopolitical goals, and was seen as the ideological enemy of the United States and England. Add to that Joseph Stalin, a suspicious and strong willed political adversary and one could consider this alliance a miracle.

    We have Winston Churchill who is a “doer”, Joseph Stalin – a survivor, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt who has to referee between the two. The three leaders, strong willed and very suspicious of one another, still made this alliance work.

    The author doesn’t just write history, he tells a story by giving us a history of each leader and what made them. Afterwards, the reader gets to learn how these three great personalities managed to synergy and find common ground (hating Nazis was a big one).

    Even though this book is long and busy, I thought it was easy to read, entertaining, and well presented. I could easily follow the author’s logic to its conclusions and even learned a few new things.

    A captivating and well written presentation of events shaping three of the most important historic figures of World War II. Some many facts I did not know prior to picking up this book. I really did not know anything regarding Stalin. And details regarding both Churchill and Roosevelt fleshed out my limited knowledge and misunderstandings of all of these leaders.

    Many interesting details regarding events are spelled out. And I can more clearly see how WWII continued to set directions for the post

I really did not know anything regarding Stalin. And details regarding both Churchill and Roosevelt fleshed out my limited knowledge and misunderstandings of all of these leaders.

    Many interesting details regarding events are spelled out. And I can more clearly see how WWII continued to set directions for the post WWII world. I can see why "those that do not study history are doomed to repeat it."

    I would highly recommend this book to everyone.

    Have a GoodReads.

    An excellent book, This to me is like a triple biography of the Big Three Allies that came together during World War II to defeat Germany and Japan. Each came from different backgrounds, and had some differences but put them aside to defeat Germany and Japan. Stalin was the only one who ruled the Soviet Union with an iron fist and had his opposition put to death or sent to gulags-labor camps and made an error to sign a treaty with Germany not to invade the Soviet Union, in which Hitler broke tha

    An excellent book, This to me is like a triple biography of the Big Three Allies that came together during World War II to defeat Germany and Japan. Each came from different backgrounds, and had some differences but put them aside to defeat Germany and Japan. Stalin was the only one who ruled the Soviet Union with an iron fist and had his opposition put to death or sent to gulags-labor camps and made an error to sign a treaty with Germany not to invade the Soviet Union, in which Hitler broke that treaty and sent German tanks into the Soviet Union in 1941. Despite the bombing of England in 1940, Winston Churchill held strong and never surrendered to the Nazi will. A fascinating book on the differences of their leadership and how they came together to win World War II.

    I really appreciated the way this book was laid out. The book starts out describing each of the men's upbringings and childhoods. Then it goes on to describe how they came to power. Lastly, it describes how they came to become Allies.

    This book is perfect for someone who wants to get an in-depth knowledge of these three men, but don't want to read separate books. I love reading historical fiction about WWII and this book really added to my knowledge base.

    The author also used photos and fun footnotes that added to the book. It was clearly well researched and well written. I did not find The Allies to be too tedious, but it could be a slow read.

    Groom's book, The Allies, is about the Alliance of Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin, the three iconic political leaders in WW2.

    Part of this book reads as a biography of Churchill focusing on his upbringing, education time in the British army, as a writer and war corresponder, his imprisonment and escape, etc. I found his life story quite interesting.

    BOOK REVIEW 📚The Allies, Winston Groom

    .

    Groom's book, The Allies, is about the Alliance of Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin, the three iconic political leaders in WW2.

    .

    Part of this book reads as a biography of Churchill focusing on his upbringing, education time in the British army, as a writer and war corresponder, his imprisonment and escape, etc. I found his life story quite interesting.

    .

    The next section of this book reads like a biography on Stalin, however, nuch of the documentation of Stalin's younger days are presented in contrast to Churchill's, demonstrating how different the two men were. Much of Stalin's history continues though a time of chaos and uncertainty in Russia.

    .

    Next, Groom presents Roosevelt's history, reading once again like a biography. We learn of Roosevelt's education, marriage, early work, his sudden illness and eventual diagnosis of polio, his involvement in politics, etc. with interesting insight into the relationship with his mother.

    .

    I liked how this book was set up focusing on the different leaders individually then merging and overlapping their histories as they became Allies in the war. It was an interesting book. Fans of WWII history should check this out!

    .

    Thank you @TLCbooktours for this copy in exchange for my review. #theallies #partner

    If you enjoy studying history this is one of his many good books. He brings historical characters to life. Even if you thought you knew almost everything about these three WWII leaders you will be finding facts new to you throughout your read.

  • Jill Mackin

    Groom brings Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin to life! The book is well written and so interesting to read. One of the biggest stories of the 20th century: the winning of the 2nd WW.

  • Brittney Farley

    The Allies is a great read for young adults who have an interest in history. Winston Groom does a great job telling the story of Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, and Joseph Stalin, the Allied powers who come together to win World War II. This story accurately depicts the history behind this war and how the Allies won and defeated the Axis powers.
