Notes:
Throughout history there have been many rivalries between party leaders, but there has never been a connection like that between Churchill and Attlee. Brought together in the circumstances of the Second World War, they forged a partnership that transcended party lines for five years. If Churchill was the giant of the war, Attlee was the hero of the peace. In a sense the two men represented different sides of the best of the English character: Churchill, quivering with martial spirit, showed that spirit of courageous determination which had led to the triumphs of Agincourt and the creation of the largest empire the world had ever seen; Attlee, on the other hand, embodied that quintessentially English decency, stoicism, fair play and dislike of showiness. This book provides insights into the two most compelling leaders of the mid-20th century, and creates a narrative that tells the story of one of the most inspiring eras in British history.
