The decision by the British War Cabinet as France was falling in May 1940 to fight on and not enter into negotiations with Hitler, had a profound effect on the outcome of the Second World War and subsequent history. The decision to fight on was not universally held within Cabinet and this book recalls circumstances and the pressures that played a part in the Cabinet's deliberations. This book will not disappoint and is a must read for any one with an interest in war history. The underlying facts deserve to be better known. Lukas has done history a fine service with this book. Highly recommended.
