5.0 out of 5 stars Churchill holds the line, 19 Jun 2008
This review is from: Five Days in London, May 1940 (Hardcover)
Churchill had been wrong so many times before on every issue that he touched, so the fact that he was made British Prime Minister, at a very dark hour in British history, was in itself amazing. The reason that he was given the role was that it was obvious that a strong leader was needed. It was his ability to turn a very sceptical Conservative party, a divided cabinet and a fearful country around to the idea that they, and they on their own, could fight on. These were the five days that shaped British history. The book is a well written account of how a very significant decision was made through the efforts of one man. He may have been wrong on everything else but he was right on the one thing that really mattered for Britain and indeed Europe, Hitler.
