Free (nook/Kindle) Winston's War by Michael Dobbs [Historical Fiction]
Winston's War: A Novel of Conspiracy by Michael Dobbs is an historical political thriller about exactly which "Winston" you're probably thinking it is, originally published to some acclaim by HarperCollins in 2002 and now offered free courtesy of re-publisher Sourcebooks.
Free @ B&N and Amazon (not available to Canadians).
Apparently this is part of a series, and the following volumes, if you're interested, will likely be cheapest from Kobo as Sourcebooks allows use of discount coupons.
Michael Dobbs' thrilling novel about the dawn of World War II, and Winston Churchill's rise to power.
It is the dawn of World War II, and Neville Chamberlain believes he has bought "peace for our time" from Adolph Hitler, who has just seized Czechoslovakia's Sudetenland. The English are alarmed by the huge German army, while the soldiers that would defend London don't even have steel helmets. For many, compromise and appeasement seem to be England's best defense.
But there are a few leaders who don't agree. Among them is Winston Churchill, who understands that the relentless march of fascism will be democracy's death knell. In October 1938, Churchill pleads his case in the press to the BBC's Guy Burgess. One of these two will become the most revered man of his time, and the other will be known as the greatest of traitors.
This stunning novel brings to life the surprising political intrigues that set the stage for World War II, and brings alive the passionate, grumpy, whiskey-drinking Winston Churchill, as he inspires his fellow countrymen to take on the world's mightiest army.
