    Churchill had supported George VI's brother during the abdication crisis, and the king had been on Chamberlain's side - in opposition to Churchill - during the period of appeasement; nevertheless the two men forged a productive alliance during the war years. This analysis of their relationship reveals how the flamboyant politician and the shy, cautious monarch had more in common than was first apparent, and how their co-operation provided stability in the nation's hour of need.
