Britain’s first land operation of the Second World War, the attempted invasion of Norway in April 1940, was a disaster. Just weeks later, Winston Churchill, the man blamed for the debacle, became Prime Minister. Ranging from the Arctic battlefields to the corridors of Westminster, this history charts the dramatic events and secret intrigues that would see Churchill oust Neville Chamberlain as premier and defeat his favoured successor, Lord Halifax, to lead Britain through the greatest challenge it had ever faced.
