In this story Larson tells the story of Winston Churchill's first year of Prime Minister, rescuing Western civilization from the edge of the abyss. Larson has transformed the well known record of the 12 turbulent months into a portrait of the essential connections between the powerful and the powerless, capturing the moments that defined life for the millions struggling to survive and the decisions of few.  These small forgotten stories, even 80 years later, make it possible to understand what made hearts race and break, best told by the people who experienced them.
