it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction
Read in December, 2009

Winston’s War was a gripping and intelligent historical novel. The well-written layers of sub-plots, the many plot twists, the numerous characters (both historical and fictional), and the historic settings (10 Downing Street, Whitehall, Parliament, Chartwell, and so on) made this an enjoyable read. The many historical and political events (the meeting between Churchill and Burgess, the Munich Conference, the invasion of Poland, the German invasion of Norway, and Chamberlain’s resignation, among others) were entertainly explored through the viewpoints and opinions of the large cast of characters. Michael Dobbs really captured Churchill’s colorful personality and character by describing Churchill vividly and in detail.
