Description

Brilliant hour-by-hour dissection of Churchill’s first weeks as Prime Minister, including the climactic five-day debate with his War Cabinet whether or not to negotiate with Hitler. The film “Darkest Hour” would not exist without this book. Now out-of-print in hardcover, this is a very good copy of the original American edition, in dust jacket
