In re-creating the 1942 Casablanca Conference, narrator Fred Sanders effectively juggles a crowded cast of historical figures and issues. That heavily guarded meeting between Roosevelt, Churchill, and the recalcitrant French set the Allied course for WWII. Sanders positions himself midway between hindsight and the outlook at the time. It helps to have some background on the era, but author Conroy is an expert in providing the most important details while keeping the narrative in motion. The story is packed with arresting characters and anecdotes. The relationship between Roosevelt and Churchill, part "bromance," part fencing match, is particularly rich, a tale of mutual affection, playfulness, and deadly consequence.
