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 establishments doubt about Churchills role after Dunkirk

- The appeasement of the trade unions in Churchills 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
