Two books -- One title

by David L on Aug 17, 2011

It's not often that two outstanding books, one ostensibly fictional, the other nonfictional history, share the same title but such is the case with WINSTON'S WAR. Michael Dobbs's historical novel walks us through the several years leading up to Sir Winston's rise to the top of Britain's political establishment in the early days of WWII. The machinations that led to the easing out of Neville Chamberlain and his replacement by Mr. Churchill make Oriental courts seem simple by comparison. Sir Max Hastings's WINSTON'S WAR picks up precisely where the Dobbs novel ends. It is exhaustively researched and detailed. It is the third volume Wm, Manchester would've published had the Good Lord given him a few more months. Most important, it gives the British perspective on a war that we usually see only from an American viewpoint -- and that perspective is very different from what you've heard or read up until now. Ideally, serious readers should read BOTH books. They are authoritative and riviting.
