The splendid and the vile / Erik Larson.

Larson, Erik, 1954- (author,, narrator.). Lee, John Rafter, (narrator.).


On Winston Churchill's first day as prime minister, Hitler invaded Holland and Belgium. Poland and Czechoslovakia had already fallen, and the Dunkirk evacuation was just two weeks away. For the next twelve months, Hitler waged a relentless bombing campaign, killing 45,000 Britons. It was up to Churchill to hold the country together and persuade President Franklin Roosevelt that Britain was a worthy ally, willing to fight to the end. Larson shows how Churchill taught the British people "the art of being fearless."
