Two men (Winston Churchill and Mackenzie King) who were polar opposites in terms of personality and in their personal lives, yet knew each other well for half a century and proved to be strongmen in the Western alliance against Germany and Japan during WWII. The illustrations included are also delightful, including rarely seen photos of Churchill taken by the Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh, besides the iconic "Bull Dog" portrait.
