Churchill in his Time
A Study in a Reputation, 1939–1945
This book, first published in 1968, analyses Winston Churchill’s war years using a wide range of little-consulted sources to give us a full and round picture of a prime minister beloved by many but disliked by others. Contemporary accounts and opinions bring us close to the reality of the man, and in doing so give us also a picture of a nation struggling with total war.
