Churchill and the King: The Wartime Alliance of Winston Churchill and George VI
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. Despite their differences, the trust and loyalty they eventually shared helped Britain navigate the most trying time in its history.
Kenneth Weisbrode is a writer and historian living in Turkey. His previous book is "The Atlantic Century: Four Generations of Extraordinary Diplomats who Forged America's Vital Alliance with Europe."
