Lieutenant General Sir Ian Jacob was a member of what Winston Churchill called "my secret circle" throughout World War II, and later became Director General of the BBC during its important period of readjustment in the post-war years. Widely recognized as one of the Army's most brilliant young officers, he had a unique opportunity, as staff co-ordinator of the military action of government, to observe the towering figure of Churchill, whom he accompanied on all his critical meetings with the Allies' national leaders. This book is based largely upon Jacob's hitherto unpublished diaries of his Churchill years and upon his personal papers and conversations with the author relating to his difficult and important role in the direction of the BBC.
