    May 1940. Britain is at war, Winston Churchill has unexpectedly been promoted to prime minister, and the horrors of Blitzkrieg witness one Western European democracy fall after another in rapid succession. Facing this horror, with pen in hand and typist-secretary at the ready, Churchill wonders what words could capture the public mood when the invasion of Britain seems mere hours away. It is this fascinating period that Anthony McCarten captures in this deeply researched and wonderfully written new book, The Darkest Hour.

    Este es el relato del tiempo angustioso que vivió Gran Bretaña en mayo de 1940, desde el día 10, en que las tropas de Hitler iniciaron la invasión de Holanda, hasta el 29, cuando los soldados británicos y franceses derrotados por los alemanes embarcaron en Dunquerque para refugiarse en Inglaterra. Esta es una historia que se suele narrar en tonos de epopeya, pero que aquí se revive en torno a la figura de Winston Churchill....

    In February 2013, the arch-conservative Pope Benedict XVI made a startling announcement: He would resign, making him the first pope to willingly vacate his office in more than 700 years. Reeling from the news, the College of Cardinals rushed to Rome to congregate in the Sistine Chapel to pick his successor. Their unlikely choice? Francis, the first non-European pope in 1,200 years, a one-time tango-club bouncer, a man with the common touch. Why did Benedict walk away at the height of power, knowing his successor might be someone whose views might undo his legacy?
