Road to Victory: Winston S. Churchill 1941-1945
Gilbert, Martin
This book continues on from "Churchill's War" at the moment where the Finest Hour ended, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 and carries it onto the bittersweet triumph of VE Day, 8 May 1945, the end of the war in Europe. - Amid all these cares and dangers Churchill had defined the course of prudence, of British national interest, and, above all, of the earliest possible victory over Nazism. In doing so he was guided by the most secret sources of British intelligence: the daily interception of the messages of the German high command. These pages reveal, at each crisis of the war, the links between this secret information and the resulting moves and successes achieved by the allies.
