This is a carefully crafted account of the political climate within the Tory party in the late 1930s Olson shows the misguided attitude of Neville Chamberlain that led to Britain's appeasement policy regarding Nazi Germany. She introduces the key players within the Tory party who supported Chamberlain, and those who sought to bring him down. In particular, she shows the ambiguous nature of Churchill's participation in the activities that ultimately brought him back into the cabinet and then made him PM. I found it riveting reading.
