The introduction establishes the rationale for the book, offers a brief literature review, lays out the research question, and posits the overall thesis. The narrative next identifies the major subthemes investigated:the U.S.-U.K. “special relationship,” Roosevelt’s intent on U.S. entry into the war, Churchill as grand strategist, and the concept of historical contingency. The introduction then outlines the structure of the book. It closes by establishing a common lexicon and definition of terms and describes the upper echelons of U.S. and British military organizations and personalities.
