Summary, etc.:
PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book. With a firm grasp of the British struggle under German aggression, Larson crafts a story of epic proportions, taking the reader on a journey of novel insight and unexpected emotion. It's not about Churchill so much as his preservation of all that Britain valued as a civilization at the height of the Second World War. What Does this Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review Include? Summary of the original book Easily digestible takeaways distilling the main ideas An overview of key events in Germany's campaign against Britain A look at how Churchill's leadership saved the free world Editorial Review & Analysis Background on Erik Larson About the Original Book: Who knew that so much could happen over the course of twenty months in Great Britain? Erik Larson has managed to extrapolate a poignant rendition of 1940 to 1941, as the British Isles took a final stand for Europe, and the United States deliberated about whether to enter the war. It's a little bit of history under a mountain of inspiration, where the leadership of heroes was only eclipsed by the bravery of those who followed them. You'll laugh and cry, and you'll certainly learn something about what it means to be human. DISCLAIMER: This book is intended as a companion to, not a replacement for, The Splendid and the Vile.
