Summary, etc.:
In this day-by-day, often hour-by-hour account of how an often Churchill turned Britain around, Anthony McCarten exposes sides of the great man never seen before. He reveals how he practiced and re-wrote his key speeches, from Blood, toil, tears and sweat to We shall fight on the beaches; his consideration of a peace treaty with Nazi Germany, and his underappreciated role in the Dunkirk evacuation; and, above all, how 25 days helped make one man an icon.
