When Churchill became Prime Minister in May 1940, he was immediately confronted with a desperate situation in France and Belgium, and the Dunkirk evacuation, followed by the French capitulation. This book evokes the relationships between Churchill and his generals - among them Brooke, Alexander, Wavell and Montgomery - and how they faced the challenges of the Second World War between Dunkirk and the passing of supreme command to the Americans in 1943.
