Jon Stewart Author Interview: Lynne Olson On 'Citizens Of London' (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart had author Lynne Olson on "The Daily Show" last night to talk about her new book, "Citizens of London," which details the start of America's "special relationship" with Britain during World War II. The book tells the story of three Americans, Edward R. Murrow, John Gilbert Winant, and Averell Harriman, who were the real force behind the solidifying of the U.S.-U.K. relationship. Stewart pointed out the very human stories behind this solidification, from the sexual relationships that all of the three men had with members of Churchill's family to the anecdote that Winant and Churchill "did a little dance" around the room when they learned about the bombing at Pearl Harbor, initiating the American entrance into the war.
