Churchill and the King

The Wartime Alliance of Winston Churchill and George VI

For fans of The King's Speech, the intriguing bond between monarch and prime minister and its crucial role during World War II
The political and personal relationship between King George VI and Winston Churchill during World War II is one that has been largely overlooked throughout history, yet the trust and loyalty these men shared helped Britain navigate its perhaps most trying time.
Despite their vast differences, the two men met weekly and found that their divergent virtues made them a powerful duo. The king's shy nature was offset by Churchill's willingness to cast himself as the nation's savior. Meanwhile, Churchill's complicated political past was given credibility by the king's embrace and counsel. Together as foils, confidants, conspirators, and comrades, the duo guided Britain through war while reinspiring hope in the monarchy, Parliament, and the nation itself.
Books about these men as individuals could fill a library, but Kenneth Weisbrode's study of the unique bond between them is the first of its kind.
