Quick overview The duel: an 80-day struggle between Adolph Hitler and Winston Churchill.
Product description

One is poised on the edge of victory, the other threatened by invasion and defeat...yet holding on, his own life in the balance and also that of the free world. In his reconstruction of the 80 days from May 10 to July 31, 1940, the author shows just how close England came to losing the war. He paints Churchill as resolute, threatened from within and without, yet unshakably determined. And Hitler flushed with victory, yet fatally undecided about how to close with Britain. "An unforgettable portrait of the mortal duel between two men and the titanic personalities involved." - Book of the Month Editorial Review Board "Lukacs's is a rigorous intelligence making strong arguments in clear language...I wish other writers on the right would ponder Mr. Lukacs's insight." Daniel Yergin, New York Times Book Review 'An outstanding historian.' David Pryce-Jones, Financial Times
