Nonfiction: Citizens Of London by Lynne Olson
   World War II buffs – this is an interesting look at how America got into the war. Olson focuses on three Americans who were crucial to the war’s success: Averell Harriman, the well-connected director of the Lend Lease program; Edward R Murrow, the chain-smoking head of CBS News who broadcasted nightly from London; and John Gilbert Winant, the new U.S. Ambassador to England after Joseph Kennedy quit the post certain that Hitler would successfully conquer England. It is a look behind the scenes.
