Overview
"Wonderfully readable. . . . This is popular history at its best." --The Daily Beast

King George VI and Winston Churchill were not destined to be partners, let alone allies. Yet together--as foils, confidants, conspirators, and comrades--the unlikely duo guided Britain through war while inspiring renewed hope in the monarchy, Parliament, and the nation itself. In Churchill and the King, Kenneth Weisbrode explores the delicate fashioning of this important, though largely overlooked, relationship. The king and Churchill met nearly every week in private over lunch during the war. As they worked through the many problems facing their nation and empire, they came to realize that they had more in common than anyone could have guessed. Despite their differences, the trust and loyalty they eventually shared helped Britain navigate the most trying time in its history.
