May, 1940. Belgium is surrendering. The British and French armies are collapsing into Dunkirk. Some in France talk of capitulation. Can Britain go it alone against a unified Europe under Hitler? Churchill feels she must. Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax says she can't. While the world is unaware, the British War Cabinet's decisions in the next five days will shape events for the next fifty years. Lukacs's tense drama is made all the more compelling by Aelred Rosser's reasoned tone and detailed narration. Though a most scholarly argument, Rosser presents it to us with the interest and immediacy of a member of the family, a well-informed brother, who has us waiting on the edge of our seats for the latest news out of London.
