Advance Praise ""Fascinating and well researched.... Dr. Swift is the first to concentrate on this unusual subject with such a wealth of sympathetic detail."" -Sarah Bradford, author of ""America's Queen: The Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth: A Biography of Britain's Queen,"" and ""The Reluctant King: The Life and Reign of George VI, 1895--1952"" ""A splendid addition to our understanding of an extraordinary Anglo-American partnership. Both intimate and expansive, Will Swift's vigorously researched book is timely, illuminating, and dramatic."" -Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of ""Eleanor Roosevelt, Vol. 1: 1884-1933"" and ""Eleanor Roosevelt, Vol. 2: The Defining Years, 1933-1938"" ""The Anglo-American alliance has long been a bedrock of the global order, and Will Swift's The Roosevelts and the Royals details an important chapter in that fascinating story with warmth and verve."" -Jon Meacham, author of ""Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship"" ""Those who remember only that the Roosevelts served hot dogs to the royals will be fascinated by this well-researched account of an historic and ennobling relationship-a great story!"" -James MacGregor Burns, author of ""The Three Roosevelts: Patrician Leaders Who Transformed America"" and ""Roosevelt: Soldier of Freedom"" ""A gripping account of four very different lives that were woven together to change the world in wartime."" -Hugo Vickers, author of ""Cecil Beaton and Alice: Princess Andrew of Greece"" ""Written in fluid and lucid prose, this book is not only eminently readable but also historically illuminating.

I thoroughly enjoyed this detailed account of the powerful impact of the friendship of these four people during pre & post WWII. The gifts that each offered the world left me so inspired. It truly is a moving book with detailed focus on their humanity, rather like the drifting of majestic clouds to reveal the interactions, emotions, the inner being of each person: FDR, Eleanor, King George, and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother ( )
