Review: WINSTON’S WAR by Michael Dobbs

Marg from ReadingAdventures read Winston’s War by Michael Dobbs for the WWII reading challenge.  Here’s a little of what she had to say about the book:

One of the most striking things about this novel for me was the reminder of how much there is that is not necessarily commonly known even when we are only a couple of generations away from the events, particularly for those of us who do not profess to be scholars of a particular period. For example, some of the most enduring images of WWII are the bombed out homes in London from the Blitz, or say the evacuation from Dunkirk, the damage done in France, Belgium and Holland. It is easy to forget that from the time that war was declared against Germany, there were many months where there was very little actual fighting, although there was plenty of political infighting going on.
