    Very well written book. There is not a lot, however, that is new or surprising if you have studied the subjects. If on the other hand this is a period of time with which one is unfamiliar, this would be a very good choice. ...

    Readable popular history dealing with three big figures in 20th century history. I think no new insights but well enough written. Broken down into sections, early life, pre-war, and wartime, so easy to read and get into. Free e-book from the library. ...

    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 wh...

    The main narrative of this book is 445 pages. So it's not short, but not terribly long, either. And what does it cover? It's essentially a triple biography of the three men in the title and the whole of World War II. That's a lot of ground to cover in 445 pages. Considering that whole ...

    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 ...

    I was provided this copy for review. The book is wonderful at lending depth and motivations to the vastly different biographies of Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin. The intentions, talents, and faults accompanying each man's rise to power are given background that contextualizes the...

    While I like Winston Groom and find him to be a very good historian this is a very weak book. It has basically an old documentary which has been told a million and one times. He offers a history of the 3 that tells us nothing. In fact there is very little discussion of the Second World...

    This book is a good overview of the three big allies that won World War II. Roosevelt,Churchill and Stalin led the countries that bore the brunt of the effort to defeat Hitler and Nazi Germany, Japan and Mussolini ?s Italy. The author gives a brief biography of each leader and how th...

    Very well written and covers some new ground in the relationships between these unlikely comrades. No one escapes critical analysis but Stalin clearly sinks to the bottom. Roosevelt comes across as gifted and politically savvy but naive about Stalin?s intentions. Churchill is present...

    Really more like a 3 1/4 to 3 1/2 stars. First half to 2/3rds was 4 stars, but last few chapters really let me down - Maybe 2 stars. Really skims over the war years for some reason. I even have a few questions about some of his statements that I might try to verify later. I think he ra...

    The Allies was a great book that captured the heart and soul of these three leaders. Each leader's life is chronicled from beginning to end in a great way in this book. I was amazed at the details that the author put into not only the people but in the events that surrounded the war. T...

    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 ge...

    Nice mini biographies of each leader. Would have given it four stars except for a glaring error. The author states FDR was laid to rest in the rose garden at Hyde Park with his parent. His parents are buried in the churchyard at St Jerome?s. Only FDR and Eleanor are buried in the gar...

    If you'd like insight into Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill with reading 25,000 pages, then this book's for you. You'll get short biographies of each man in the opening pages. The background is helpful as Groom later moves to the interactions of the three men during WWII. You will gain ...

    An unlikely alliance and an unlikely result If one were totally ignorant of the reason for which World War II began, or the reasons it was fought, this book will lead you to the heart of the matter. Concise and driven by facts, it is an honest look at the very unlikely alliance tha...
