The Devils Will Get No Rest

In January 1943, Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and their divided high command met in secret at Casablanca in an active Moroccan war zone to plan the defeat of Germany, Italy, and Japan at the turning point of World War II. Enclosed by barbed wire at a commandeered resort hotel, protected by British marines and elite American troops, they produced a winning strategy after ten days of sharp disagreement, intense sibling rivalry, and often heated argument and turned an alliance of convenience into an Anglo-American bond. James B. Conroy’s fourth acclaimed book of narrative history, The Devils Will Get No Rest, FDR, Churchill, and the Plan That Won the War, is the story of how they did it.

“James Conroy has brought a pivotal moment in world history to vivid and engaging life...” - Jon Meacham, author of Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship

“I can highly recommend The Devils Will Get No Rest, an excellent book about the Casablanca Conference of January 1943.” - Lord Andrew Roberts, author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny.

“This is a spellbinding, character-driven account... freshly researched, crisply written, and supremely interesting... a richly gifted storyteller has given us the finest account yet published on this momentously important turning point in world history.” - Donald L. Miller, author of Masters of the Air
