The Duel - Hitler vs Churchill 10 May - 31 July 1940

£2.99

Product description

On 10 May 1940, Winston Churchill became Prime Minister - on 31 July 1940, the United States finally agreed to send desperately needed military aid. During the intervening 80 days, possibly the most critical of the entire war, the future of Britain and Western Europe was to an extraordinary degree in the hands of just two men whose personalities and ambitions stood in direct opposition. Churchill was not yet the commanding political figure he was soon to become; Hitler was in an infinitely stronger military position. Yet at the end of those 80 days - during which German armies swept across the Low Countries and Northern France, and might (had Hitler chosen to) have destroyed a significant part of the British Army at Dunkirk - the balance shifted decisively.;How and why this happened is the subject of this book, a narrative account of the relationship between Churchill and Hitler at what historian John Lukacs regards as the turning point of the war.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
