Inhaltsangabe: Winston Churchill embarks on a battle of wills with Adolf Hitler in the run-up to Dunkirk. The compelling new historical novel from the acclaimed author of Winston's War. Winston Churchill at his lowest ebb -- pitted in personal confrontation with Adolf Hitler, and with ghosts from his tormented past. Friday 10 May 1940. Hitler launches a devastating attack that within days will overrun France, Holland and Belgium, and bring Britain to its knees at Dunkirk. It is also the day Winston Churchill becomes Prime Minister. He is the one man capable of standing in Hitler's way -- yet Churchill is still deeply mistrusted within his own Cabinet and haunted by the memory of his tortured father. Never Surrender is a novel about the courage and defiance that were displayed in abundance -- not just by Churchill, but by ordinary men and women over three of the most momentous weeks in British history.
From the Back Cover:
?This is a magnificent novel. It will hold the reader's fascination from beginning to end.?
This stunning historical novel brings you deep inside Winston Churchill's mind and heart as he becomes Prime Minister and takes on the terrifying challenge of halting Hitler's murderous invasion of France, Holland and Belgium with only his wits and his magnificent words. Only his courage stands between the people of the British Isles and advancing enemy armies as they drive his retreating soldiers onto the beaches of Dunkirk and into the English channel. You will live at Churchill's side as he deals with his own feelings of inadequacy while contending with his fellow ministers, who plot to throw him out of office. And you will be the fly on the wall of history as he matches wits with Hitler in the most crucial battlefield of all, the battlefield of the mind.

?Dobbs doesn?t put a foot wrong. I read it in two gulps in just two nights; the characters are brilliantly sketched.?
-Churchill Center website
?Dobbs masterfully dissects three weeks of the Second World War. A historical hit.?
