CathyinLA - Fascinating Book
Fascinating history. Wasn't so interested in reading a book about Winston Churchill and WWII, but have read Devil in the White City and In the Garden of Evil, so I know how Erik Larsen can expertly weave many facets of a story together. He does the deep research and writes in a novel like narrative that makes this history lesson a real page turner.
Cyber_Grunt - Great book
Tells the interesting facts about one of the world’s most interesting leaders....2 👍👍

Game-ination - Depiction of the human spirit
Incredible depiction of hope that overcame the fear.
cathjar - Engaging
Eric Larson is such a good author with well researched and well written accounts of his subjects. This stunning book of Winston Churchill gives an account of his history as he led England to victory over her aggressors. Brilliant!
Small town mover - Fresh Insight on Churchill
I found Larsen's new book, "The Splendid and the Vile", well worth reading. It gave a personal context to the immense challenge which faced England and Churchill when they alone were standing up to Hitler. We see the events through the eyes of those who worked for the prime minister as well as the family and friends he had. A sense of the German actors and their strategies are touched on in a readable way. I thought it ironic that as everyday items came into short supply, King George asked his ambassador to the US to send the Palace toilet paper! Alas, echoes of today's pandemic!
DFX406 - Completely gripping
Incredible feat of storytelling. Totally transports the reader to a world changing time in history, and leaves you in awe of what was endured and overcome.
Smiling65 - Fascinating!
Another engrossing look at history from Erik Larson. Highly recommend.
Peter 14 - Splendid
It was an up close look of the challenges of life during wartime. It was interesting to learn how people dealt with daily life while being bombed constantly. Worth a read.
dhydjdbdydbdydjdgydjd - Great Book
This book is great because it is historical fiction about Adolf Hitler
Ironwill7901 - Outstanding
Proving yet again why he and David McCullough are the Kings of History.
NaNell Cook - Truthfull
Thoughtfully written account of all sides Winston!
FJMonty - Enamored
My first book on Churchill and Erik Larsen provided me with a vivid story about the man, his family and his staff I feel like I now know them all personally. Frightening years that but for his leadership may have changed the world forever. Thank you for letting these historical figures introduce themselves through their own words and actions. Oh how I wish I could experience a night at Chequers!
DaveAppleVan - Larson at his best
I have read several works about Churchill. This is one of the best and most entertaining. This is a story of true courage, which at this time we surely need.
