Description
This illuminating work discloses, for the first time, the inner machinations of Britain’s wartime government. Dispelling the popular myth that the War Cabinet constituted an unbreakable ‘band of brothers’, Schneer reveals that they were in fact a ‘team of rivals’, steeped in quarrels, power plays, unexpected alliances and intrigue. Beyond the war itself, the book traces how the prospect of peace saw this ensemble of political titans fall apart, paving the way for a unified Labour government and the birth of the welfare state.
