In the Dark Streets Shineth, by David McCullough

It seems like cheating to count this for any reading challenges, as it was so short.  I picked it up at the clearance sales last year, so I knew it was a slim volume.  I didn't realize that it was mostly pictures.

However, it is a nice little story about Winston Chruchill secretly heading to the U.S. to see President Roosevelt after Pearl Harbor was attacked.  He spent the holiday in Washington, attended the tree lighting and church service with the Roosevelts and then spoke at the President's holiday radio address.

So, this is a nice book to have in my library, but it didn't run as deep as I'd hoped.
