An original and exciting approach ... John Buckley is one of our very finest historians of the Second World War and there is absolutely no-one better placed to examine the key decisions that were made. Adds enormously to our understanding of the conflict. -- James Holland, bestselling author of Normandy '44 John Buckley's book is a reminder that history, when it's happening, far from being long ago and set in stone, is a never ending now, a relentless and endless present that comes without the luxury of hindsight -- Al Murray, comedian and writer
