Before reading this book, I had no idea how, unlike now, we were desperate for American help. He tells us how this need led to the end of Britain's power and the beginning of American domination, which has now come to a crisis point.
I lived through that time, but much of the story Moss tells of these 19 weeks in 1940 is new and shocking to me, including how near we came to being invaded, and the fact that some people in the Government were willing to make peace with Hitler.
Not only that but the fascinating details of what was going on some 30000 miles away, virtually unknown to us then, gives the book an almost cliffhanger intensity.
It will be required reading for anyone wishing to study or understand that period.
