Five Days with Winston Churchill--May 1940

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic There were many pivotal moments during World War II, but none more dramatic or essential to the ultimate Allied victory than the period from May 24-28, 1940. Five Days in London: May 1940 (Yale University Press, 2001) by John Lukacs provides a fascinating and almost hour-by-hour account of those crucial days. Lukacs reconstructs how Winston Churchill, who had become Prime Minister only two weeks earlier, and the rest of the British cabinet grappled with some of the most difficult decisions of the entire war. Based on comprehensive research and previously classified materials, Lukacs weaves the tale like a spellbinding novel. This study group will rely primarily on Lukacs' book, which is available in paperback through online merchants. Join us for a lively discussion of the roles played by the main characters and the brave decisions made by Churchill despite incredible military pressures and internal dissension.
