This highly praised book by the Wolfson History Prize-winning author of SALISBURY tackles six aspects of Churchilliana and uncovers a plethora of disturbing facts about wartime and post-war Britain. His revelations include: - The case for the impeachment of Lord Mountbatten - The Nazi sympathies of Sir Arthur Bryant, hitherto considered a 'patriotic historian' - The British establishment's doubt about Churchill's role after Dunkirk - The appeasement of the trade unions in Churchill's Indian summer - The inside story of black immigration in the early 1950s - The anti-Churchill stance adopted by the Royal Family in 1940

User Review  - Mark Singer - Goodreads

Revisionist look at selected famous Britons of the mid-twentieth century. The chapter that demolishes the myth of Lord Mountbatten alone makes this worth reading! Read full review
