The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz

The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz

A fascinating history of The Blitz. With a narrative lens focusing mostly on the concentric social circles around Winston Churchill, Larson does an excellent job of portraying the precarious situation Britain faced in standing alone against the Nazi aerial bombardment and impending invasion until America’s entry into the war in 1941.
