From the reviews for Winston's War 'Dobbs is an author who can bring historical happenings so vitally back to life ! made all the more impressive by being, so far as I could see, historically accurate in every respect.' Anthony Howard, THE TIMES 'An intriguing tale of espionage and treason that charts the increasingly tangled lives of a unique cast. This is a work to enthral.' DAILY MAIL 'Dobbs has done a brilliant job in evoking the drama and despair of Britain hovering on the edge of the abyss.' SUNDAY EXPRESS '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.' IRISH INDEPENDENT

Notă biografică

Michael Dobbs' books have a knack of being uncannily timely. His award-winning House of Cards trilogy foreshadowed both the downfall of Margaret Thatcher and the increasing turmoil within the Royal Family, while his Goodfellowe MP novels showed how a small band of highly motivated men could bring a great city to its knees. His most recent bestselling novel, Winston's War, was published just as the nation was voting for Winston Churchill as the Greatest Briton. He has been an academic, a broadcaster, a senior corporate executive and an adviser to two Prime Ministers.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

?This is a magnificent novel. It will hold the reader's fascination from beginning to end.?
-Press Association
This stunning historical novel brings you deep inside Winston Churchill's mind and heart as he becomes Prime Minister and takes on the terrifying challenge of halting Hitler's murderous invasion of France, Holland and Belgium with only his wits and his magnificent words. Only his courage stands between the people of the British Isles and advancing enemy armies as they drive his retreating soldiers onto the beaches of Dunkirk and into the English channel. You will live at Churchill's side as he deals with his own feelings of inadequacy while contending with his fellow ministers, who plot to throw him out of office. And you will be the fly on the wall of history as he matches wits with Hitler in the most crucial battlefield of all, the battlefield of the mind.
Best-selling author Michael Dobbs has written fifteen novels. He served as one of the chief advisers to Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher and John Major.
?Dobbs doesn?t put a foot wrong. I read it in two gulps in just two nights; the characters are brilliantly sketched.?

?Dobbs masterfully dissects three weeks of the Second World War. A historical hit.?
-Daily Mirror
?Better than any other fiction, [Dobbs's books] convey the desperation of those times, which we today, six decades removed, cannot possibly imagine.?
