Found 28th Feb
From the prize-winning screenwriter of The Theory of Everything, this is a cinematic, behind-the-scenes account of a crucial moment which takes us inside the mind of one of the world's greatest leaders - and provides a revisionist, more rounded portrait of his leadership.

May, 1940. Britain is at war, European democracies are falling rapidly and the public are unaware of this dangerous new world. Just days after his unlikely succession to Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, faces this horror - and a sceptical King and a party plotting against him. He wonders how he can capture the public mood and does so, magnificently, before leading the country to victory.

It is this fascinating period that Anthony McCarten captures in this deeply researched, gripping day-by-day (and often hour-by-hour) narrative. In doing so he revises the familiar view of Churchill - he made himself into the iconic figure we remember and changed the course of history, but through those turbulent and dangerous weeks he was plagued by doubt, and even explored a peace treaty with Nazi Germany. It's a scarier, and more human story, than has ever been told.

Thanks op. Haven't seen the film yet so will give this a read first
I for one will never watch this or any other film about Churchill the Warmonger. If anyone here is really interested in learning about Churchill then look no further than David Irving's book, Churchill's War vol 1&2. The real story is far from that which the entire World has been brainwashed into believing. The fighting in the 2nd World War would never had happened if Churchill hadn't got into power, he bankrupted England and cost it its Empire. NB. David Irving bases all his books on facts i.e real hard evidence.
Both volumes are available in PDF.

I'll probably be the only one who partially agrees with you.

Chamberlain was the real hero, but was painted as weak. He bought the country the time it needed to prepare for a war.

Trying to make a pact with the Soviet Union against Germany was the prelude to war. Poland was just the excuse the war mongers needed.

The war potentially would have happened years later due to the holocaust.

Have read a few of his books and found them very interesting. Sad to say but History is written by the victors.

Is this the same David Irving who disputes that the holocaust happened? Don't want to get into argument and everyone is entitled to their view. But this is nonetheless a £9 book for 99p hence my post

Said like a true neo-Nazi holocaust denier.

And look at the two SS,s in his name. Doesn't even try to hide it!

What a strange post, was it not Hitler and the German people who spent years building up advanced weapons of war in secret? Persecuting Jews or anybody else he viewed as subhuman. Had Churchill not ignored those willing to appease the Germans and instead fight how many more would have died in the death camps?

"David Irving bases all his books on facts i.e real hard evidence." - Denies the holocaust happened.

Only a Nazi apologist would call the British government that warned …Only a Nazi apologist would call the British government that warned Germany not to invade Poland warmongers, and not the warmongers that did invade!The British bent over backwards to appease Hitler for years, and could have gone to war at anytime before. Trying to make a pact with the USSR was done to avoid a war, to scare Hitler into ending his expansion, not to foster one. As we know the Soviets made a pact with the Nazis instead and carved up Poland between them.



So you're calling me a Nazi apologist? I find that libelous.

I know and understand history. You do not.

Churchill was a disaster. There are many more people responsible for the successes during WWII than just a good speech reader.
Without the building of Radar on the coastline before the conflict, the Battle of Britain would have been over in days.

I couldn't care whether you find that libelous or not, for you to have said what you did in your previous post I'd say you patently are.

You know and understand history? I do not? Well you have that the wrong way round for sure. For instance you will find Churchill supported radar greatly and without that support it may never have got off the ground. (Pun intended)
Because you had my first post censored for calling you out, I'll put it back in as my argument was valid albeit I'll do so without the "offending remark".

Only a [censored] would call the British government that warned Germany not to invade Poland warmongers, and not the warmongers that did invade!The British bent over backwards to appease Hitler for years, and could have gone to war at anytime before.

A cheap cliche there. Yes that may apply for wars in the very distant past, but a war that is still in living memory? No. History is written by both victors and losers for WW2. Some like here, take the losers' side. In fact more than most actually do themselves. Japan being an exception perhaps. But it's open to everyone. Plenty of revisionist history out there. Even books on the holocaust not ever taken place. Often rebel cool nowadays to take up a controversial view, often from reading just one or two revisionist books.
David Irving is not a holohoax denier. He denies the story about the Gas chambers, however,he does state that the Germans killed millions of people and that could be classed as a holocaust.

Do you? My great grandparents will hopefully come and haunt you if you do. (If only)

Foolish question seeing you use the term holohoax.
