Reviews
"It is salutary to be reminded in this powerful study how close Hitler came to winning in 1940. . . . An impressive study . . . [written] with elegance and panache."--Peter Stansky, New York Times

"Like all the great historians, this Hungarian-American [Lukacs], also is a great philosopher of history. He is best known for developing his idea of 'historical consciousness' and as a historian of World War II, the Cold War and democracy in America."--John Seiler, Orange County Register (CA)


"Mr. Lukacs is one of the more incisive historians of the 20th century, and especially of the tangled events leading to World War II."--Joseph C. Goulden, Washington Times
"A master of narrative history on a par with Barbara Tuchman and Garrett Mattingly."--Kirkus Reviews

"A masterful book--masterful in its portrayal of its protagonists, masterful in its overall understanding of the death-struggle in which they engaged, masterful, above all, in its vivid, suspenseful chronicling of the most momentous eighty days in the history of this century."--Geoffrey Ward


"This is a marvelous book. John Lukacs has lucid, unsentimental insight into the mind and character of both Churchill and Hitler."--Conor Cruise O'Brien
"A wonderful story wonderfully told."--George F. Will
