This magnificent volume, now in a smaller paperback format, gives you exclusive access to behind the glass partition at Churchill War Rooms, bringing you closer than ever before to where Churchill not only ran the war - but won it. Go behind closed doors to sit at Churchills desk, open long-abandoned drawers and sift through seventy-year old papers. See the anxious scratches on the arms of Sir Winstons chair, pick up the phone that he used to speak to the president of the United States, and examine the map that loomed over his bed as he took his famous afternoon naps. These are sights you cant experience on a tour of Churchill War Rooms; they are views that few people in the world have ever seen. But now you can walk where Churchill walked, and see what Churchill saw. Now you can discover the Secrets of Churchills War Rooms.
On May 10, 1940, Britain s new prime minister strode purposefully down to the basement of an anonymous government building and entered a top secret command center. This, growled Winston Churchill, is the room from which I will run the war. At the wars end, Churchill and his colleagues left the chamber and locked the door behind them and the War Rooms remained there, untouched and little known, until the early 1980s. Today, those historic chambers are on display as the Churchill War Rooms exhibit. With Secrets of Churchills War Rooms, you can go behind the glass partitions that separate the War Rooms from the visiting public, bringing readers closer than ever before to where Churchill not only ran the war but won it. This magnificent volume offers up-close photography of details in every room and provides access to sights unavailable on a simple tour of Churchill War Rooms. These are views that few people in the world have ever seen. Go behind closed doors to sit at Churchill s desk, open up long-abandoned drawers and sift through seventy-year old papers. See the anxious scratches on the arms of Sir Winston s chair, pick up the phone that he used to speak to the president of the United States, and examine the map that loomed over his bed as he took his famous afternoon naps. Including three hundred detailed images and first-hand memories of Churchill as a leader, a boss, a father, a husband, and a man, Secrets of Churchills War Rooms tells the fascinating story of the work carried out in these underground offices.
