In crafting a day by day, nearly hour by hour record of the lives of Winston Churchill, his family, staff, cabinet members and even German foes, Larson offers readers a decidedly inside view of WWII/The Blitz from 1940-1941. Perhaps I now know more than I would truly ever intend to know about daughter Mary's social life, but the information and perspective gained, most especially for a moderately history-challenged reader such as myself, will always be invaluable to me. ~ Reviewed by Jon Fine
