By mid-1940, Britain—led by newly appointed Prime Minister Winston Churchill—found itself isolated and alone, facing the threat of a Nazi Germany emboldened by victory at the Battle of Dunkirk, the first major conflict on the Western Front. Best-selling author Michael Korda, who, as a young child, evacuated Britain during the War, discusses the early years of World War II. 

Michael Korda is author of Alone: Britain, Churchill, and Dunkirk: Defeat into Victory
