“Churchill and Roosevelt” at Essex Meadows

The newly-formed Churchill Society of Connecticut will present a talk by author and Rutgers Professor Emeritus Warren Kimball, on Winning the War and the Peace; Churchill, Roosevelt, and the Second World War, on Wednesday, May 18 at 7  p.m. at Essex Meadows.     

 The Churchill Society of Connecticut, a chapter of the Churchill Centre, was formed with the purpose of educating new generations about the leadership, statesmanship, vision and courage of Winston Spenser Churchill, and to keep his memory alive in older generations. A ten dollar donation for this program is invited, to help defray expenses. 

Until his retirement, Warren Kimball was the Robert Treat Professor of History at Rutgers University, New Jersey. He is the author of “Forged in War; Roosevelt, Churchill, and the Second World War”, in addition to numerous other books, and edited the three-volume collection of Churchill’s and Roosevelt’s complete correspondence. According to Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.,  Warren Kimball has studied the Churchill/Roosevelt relationship more carefully than anyone else.
