Churchill's Bunker: The Secret Headquarters at the Heart of Britain's Victory | [Richard Holmes]

Churchill's Bunker: The Secret Headquarters at the Heart of Britain's Victory

‘This is the room from which I will direct the war,’ Churchill declared, shortly after becoming Prime Minister in 1940. And he did just that, as the distinguished Churchill biographer Richard Holmes explains in the first history of the Cabinet War Rooms. It was from these cramped confines that Churchill turned a seemingly inevitable defeat at the hands of the Nazis into a famous victory. Yet he was based in the very heart of the capital.

Publisher's Summary

‘This is the room from which I will direct the war,’ Churchill declared, shortly after becoming Prime Minister in 1940. And he did just that, as the distinguished Churchill biographer Richard Holmes explains in the first history of the Cabinet War Rooms. It was from these cramped confines that Churchill turned a seemingly inevitable defeat at the hands of the Nazis into a famous victory.

Yet he was based in the very heart of the capital. Built in 1938 as a temporary refuge in case of air raid attack, this secret bunker became a second home to Churchill, and to large numbers of military personnel and civil servants.

    Story
    "How Churchill pulled Britain out of the mire."
    Would you listen to Churchill's Bunker again? Why?

    Yes, very detailed breakdown of how Britain was able to plan/control the waging of WW2 to enable


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Churchill's Bunker?

    Finding out that Churchill was shot at when he visited the Briish embassy in Athens in early 1945!!


    What does John Telfer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice of the great man in your consciousness


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really other than the great cock ups (Singapore, Crete, sinking of HMS Prince of Wales etc.)


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe a bit deep into who was the personal secretary to the private secretary of the war cabinet commitee on the war commitee........
