How Churchill Saved Civilization resolves the lingering mysteries surrounding the causes of the Second World War, and what transpired during the war to bring its end result. It proposes answers to such questions as "Why were the Allies unprepared?", "Why did France collapse so quickly?", "Why didn't the British government accept Hitler's peace proposals?" and "Why did the Germans allow Hitler to obtain life and death control over them?"

But the book's main purpose is to provide an account of Winston Churchill's actions and their intended consequences as well as some of the unintended ones for readers who are unlikely to read a military history book of 800 pages. The author has pared down the details of this at once fascinating and frightening story to an accessible length of how the world nearly ended in the 1940s. How Churchill Saved Civilization was written in honor of all those who sacrificed their lives in the War, and to caution readers that it could very easily happen again, as key factors like complacency, ignorance, and weakness continue to play a role in international diplomacy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Harte minces no words in presenting Churchill as the central figure and driving force in the West's resistance to Nazi Germany--resistance that was by no means a given. Harte describes Churchill as unique in being alert to danger, perceptive in analyzing it, and decisive in responding to it. Churchill's failures and shortcomings were penumbras of his ability and insight. Not, in the context of times times, was he a blinkered imperialist nor a destructive racist. Unabashed and unapologetic, this is a controversial and useful addition to the literature." -Dennis Showalter, PhD, author of Patton and Rommel , Hitler's Panthers, and Armor and Blood: The Battle of Kursk
