By A Customer on 6 Sept. 2003
Format: Hardcover
At this time, when Britain's relationship with America is so much called into question, it is particularly fascinating to read Norman Moss's riveting book Nineteen Weeks.
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.

Format: Hardcover
As a Londoner,in 1940, awaiting my call-up for the R.A.F. for which service I had just volunteered, I found Norman Moss's evocation of those vital weeks between May and September of that year an astonishngly accurate and thrilling evocation of the very essence of that historic time.
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.

A really good read, for a change, it was well researched, none of the stupid mistakes that you normally see these days. Like most people, I suspect, I have read many books about the actual Battle of Britain. this book goes into the politics behind the scenes. If you think to yourself, "politics is boring", you will be happily surprised at the way this book deals with the subject! As I said, I really enjoyed it, many thanks Mr Moss!
