Product Description:

Winston Churchill has reached his lowest point - reviled, mocked, accused of being nothing more than a drunken warmonger. Now his arch-rival, Neville Chamberlain, has done a deal with Hitler that destroys everything he has fought for. However, it is 1938 - the world is about to change.

Review:

‘Michael Dobbs’ latest novel is a vividly realised record of the events surrounding the great Briton’s remarkable rise. An intriguing tale of espionage and treason … a work to enthral. This novel never ceases to be compelling.’
Stephanie Cross, Daily Mail

‘Churchill is a brooding presence … as riveting as Francis Urquhart. Dobbs’ novel is astonishingly historically accurate. He certainly knows where all the skeletons are hidden and where every body is buried. He manages to give a vivid impression of the seamier side of politics in the year that immediately preceded the outbreak of war … compelling.’
Anthony Howard, The Times

‘Dobbs has done a brilliant job in evoking the drama and despair of Britain hovering on the edge of the abyss.’
Sunday Express

‘Michael Dobbs weaves a fascinating tale of conspiracy, blackmail and treachery … This page-turning, meaty, densely textured wartime thriller unblinkingly dissects the wealthy oligarchy that nearly ruined Britain and throws a very new light on Burgess and his place in history.’
Myles McWeeney, Irish Independent
