Churchill’s Last Stand
The Struggle for Europe
by FELIX KLOS
After the Second World War, with much of Europe in ruins, the victorious Winston Churchill swore to build a peace across Europe that would last a generation. Fighting against the new “Iron Curtain” which had fallen across the world, and battling the personal disappointment of losing the 1945 election in Britain, Churchill dedicated the rest of his life to forging a united Europe.
This book, based on new research and evidence, reveals his vision: Britain as a leading member of the European family. Through Churchill’s own private papers, Felix Klos unveils Churchill’s personal battle to regain his place in world affairs, his confidential conversations with European leaders and the thinking and preparation behind some of his most powerful speeches.
Churchill’s Last Stand is a beautifully written history of post-War Europe and a revealing and powerfullook at Churchill’s globalist vision.
“Scintillating… It knocks [Boris] Johnson’s sloppy, solipsistic opportunism for six.”
MARTIN KETTLE, GUARDIAN
“A deeply researched and beautifully writen reminder of
where the European dream came from”
PROFESSOR ROBERT GILDEA, WINNER OF THE WOLFSON HISTORY PRIZE
“Timely, erudite and absorbing”
PROFESSOR PETER CATTERALL , EDITOR OF THE MACMILLAN DIARIES
FELIX KLOS is an historian who has had access to unpublished Churchill papers and archives. He undertook his research at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and at Churchill’s family home, Chartwell.
