Michael Dobbs, "Never Surrender: A Novel of Winston Churchill"
Sourcebooks Landmark | 2007-09-01 | ISBN: 1402210442 | 336 pages | PDF | 1,3 MB
This extraordinary work of historical fiction by bestselling author Michael Dobbs finds Winston Churchill at his lowest ebb-pitted in a personal confrontation with Adolf Hitler and the ghosts from his past.
The battle begins on Friday, May 10, 1940, when Hitler launches a devastating attack that within days will overrun France, Holland and Belgium and bring Britain to its knees at Dunkirk. Never Surrender is about Churchill's courage and defiance, his ability to lead a nation during three of the most crucial weeks in its history. Without the physical forces necessary to stave off German attack, Churchill uses the force of words to stand in Hitler's way, to show that no accords will be made.
To read this book is to live these tense days at Churchill's side, to experience his feelings of deep inadequacy as he deals with defeatist ministers, intransigent generals and a military disaster of biblical proportion.
