About the Author

John Lukacs is the author of numerous books, among them The Hitler of History, The End of the Twentieth Century and the End of the Modern Age, Five Days in London, and A Thread of Years. The last two are available from Yale University Press.


"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

"The duelers are Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler, and Lukacs has taken eighty crucial days in 1940, dug up the papers of all the people involved, and produced a dramatic, ground-eye view of a period during which the direction of World War II balanced precariously."-Adam Smith, The Week

"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
