A controversial account of the Churchill years by a bestselling historian.
'The best sort of history - revealing, gossipy and acidulous' OBSERVER

This highly praised book by the Wolfson History Prize-winning author of SALISBURY tackles six aspects of Churchilliana and uncovers a plethora of disturbing facts about wartime and post-war Britain.
His revelations include:

- The case for the impeachment of Lord Mountbatten
- The Nazi sympathies of Sir Arthur Bryant, hitherto considered a 'patriotic historian'
- The British establishment's doubt about Churchill's role after Dunkirk
- The appeasement of the trade unions in Churchill's Indian summer
- The inside story of black immigration in the early 1950s
- The anti-Churchill stance adopted by the Royal Family in 1940

MEDIA REVIEWS
An elegantly written, thought-provoking book...an essential reappraisal of British myths since 1939 * THE TIMES *
A book of quite exceptional quality...Roberts resembles Strachey in his iconoclasm, and in the brilliance of his writing * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
The best sort of history - revealing, gossipy and acidulous * INDEPENDENT *
Not since A J P Taylor gave his legendary lectures on the origins of the Second World War has an historical study given me such intellectual and aesthetic satisfaction -- John Torode * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
