For four decades "The Sunday Times" correspondent in Washington DC became an influential foreign correspondent in America. Here are behind-the- scenes stories of the many coups in Brandon's career including the incident where he was the first Western journalist to learn that the Russians had put missiles into Cuba in 1962, and the background to when he broke the story of the British withdrawal from East of Suez. More than that, this is a memoir of such figures as Dean Acheson, Henry Kissinger, Walter Lippmann, John F. Kennedy, Felix Frankfurter, Harold Macmillan, and Robert McNamara, as well as the "special relationship" between Britain and the United States, whose rough patches and resilience Brandon chronicles from a uniquely privileged vantage point. Henry Brandon worked for "The Sunday Times" for 40 years. He is the author of "As we are", "In the Red", and "The Retreat of American Power". He was awarded the CBE for services to journalism.
