Summary
How Churchill Saved Civilization resolves the lingering mysteries surrounding the causes of the Second World War, and what transpired during the war to bring its end result. It proposes answers to such questions as 2Why were the Allies unprepared?3, 2Why did France collapse so quickly?3, 2Why didn{u2019}t the British government accept Hitler{u2019}s peace proposals?3 and 2Why did the Germans allow Hitler to obtain life and death control over them?3 But the book{u2019}s main purpose is to provide an account of Winston Churchill{u2019}s actions and their intended consequences {u2013} as well as some of the unintended ones {u2013} for readers who are unlikely to read a military history book of 800 pages. The author has pared down the details of this at once fascinating and frightening story to an accessible length of how the world nearly ended in the 1940s. How Churchill Saved Civilization was written in honor of all those who sacrificed their lives in the War, and to caution readers that it could very easily happen again, as key factors like complacency, ignorance, and weakness continue to play a role in international diplomacy
