Review Text

The personal antagonism of Hitler and Churchill (who never met) from 10 May to 31 July 1940 is the reason why the British continued in a war that everyone on the continent thought they had lost, and secured through the Battle of Britain a long war that, in the end, they won. (Kirkus UK)
