Citizens of London Reviews


Olson sifts through the immense amount of material on the period and crafts a cracking good read....Finely done. * New York Post *
I don"t live in London anymore and I couldn"t afford it even if I wanted to, but the city beloved by Winant and Murrow will always mean as much to me as it did to them and their deep attachment to it is perhaps the strongest thing that resonates from this wonderful book. * War History Online 25/03/2015 *
