This book is listed in Paul W. Blackstock and Frank L. Schaf[1] but almost unknown on the internet, other than sites that offer it for sale. The topic is a worthy one, “The Special Relationship” that exists since WWII between Great Britain and the United States. I have posted comments on the Special Relationship (owing to Nigel West).[2]

A novel dealing with this special relationship written in 1969 would have a much more positive view of the relationship than is true in 2016. No doubt the U.S., while frequently at odds on policy, would bond together in the event of major threats to security of either. This took place between Tony Blair and George W. Bush after 9/11.
