Summary
Winston Churchill stood before the House of Commons on May 13, 1940, to deliver his first speech as Prime Minister. Europe was in crisis: Three days earlier, Germany had invaded France and the Low Countries. Facing only feeble resistance, Hitler's armies were sweeping westward rapidly. Neville Chamberlain's government collapsed, accused of mishandling the war, and Churchill was chosen to succeed him. Churchill had little support within the new government when he rose to address it on May 13. "I have never believed in him, " wrote on MP. Another described Churchill as a "disaster." In fact, Churchill lacked confidence, both in himself and in his ability to lead his nation to victory. John Lukacs, in Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat, recreates this pivotal moment in world history, and reveals Churchill as he has rarely been seen before: as a man both unsure of himself and fearful, deeply, of his nation's defeat
