Demolishes the myth, foisted by Rolf Hochhuth’s play, “The Soldiers,” that Churchill was implicated in the “murder” of Polish General Sikorski, whose death was certainly an accident. Thompson, a friend of Hochhuth’s, became alienated by the latter’s sensationalist charges and wrote this book to refute them.
This is a very good copy of the First English edition, in an unclipped, later printing dust jacket (with reviews on the rear face) that has darkened a bit with age.
