Summary
"Examines the decisions and policies Churchill made in the vital months between June 1940 and December 1941 that hindered more than helped the Allied cause. From dispatching British troops to North Africa and Greece and establishing the Special Operations Executive, to his insistence on the Mediterranean's importance to victory and ignoring George C. Marshall's plan that would have won the war in 1943, Churchill's directives not only extended the conflict, but also destabilized several regions that remain in chaos even at the dawn of the twenty-first century. With ... insight into Churchill's early colonial experiences as well as his first tenure as First Lord of the Admiralty, Christopher Catherwood offers an ... appraisal of his strategies in a ... perspective that separates the myth from the man."--Front flap of jacket
