Alone:Britain, Churchill, and Dunkirk: Defeat into Victory
Former Simon & Schuster editor-in-chief and bestselling author Michael Korda (Hero, 2010) was born and raised in England and evacuated as a child during World War II. Thus, he weaves family stories into his account of the crucial year 1940, when Winston Churchill replaced Neville Chamberlain as Prime Minister and Germany tramped into France, leaving Britain alone to fight the enemy. Then there was the heroic rescue of Allied soldiers stranded at the beaches of Dunkirk, France. For fans of the Christopher Nolan film, Dunkirk.
