World War II was the defining event of our age—the climactic clash between democracy and tyranny. It led to revolutions, the demise of empires, a protracted Cold War, and religious strife still not ended. Yet Churchill maintained that it was all avoidable: “If the Allies had resisted Hitler strongly in his early stages...he would have been forced to recoil.” Here is a transformative view of Churchill’s prescriptions, and the degree to which he pursued them in the decade before the war. It shows he was both right and wrong: right that Hitler could have been stopped; wrong that he did all he could to stop him. Could WW2 have been prevented? Yes—at one juncture in particular—but with great difficulty.

About the Author:

Richard M. Langworth began his Churchill work in 1968 when he organized the Churchill Study Unit and its journal, FINEST HOUR. It later became the International Churchill Society and finally the Churchill Centre, devoted to all aspects of Churchill’s life. Mr. Langworth served as its president (1996-2000) and editor of FINEST HOUR (1982-2014). In 2014 he was appointed senior fellow for Hillsdale College’s Churchill Project. In 1998, Richard Langworth was appointed a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty The Queen “for services to Anglo- American understanding and the memory of Sir Winston Churchill.” Langworth published the first American edition of Churchill’s "India," is the author of "A Connoisseur’s Guide to the Books of Sir Winston Churchill," and editor of "Churchill by Himself," "The Definitive Wit of Winston Churchill," "The Patriot’s Churchill," "All Will Be Well: Good Advice from Winston Churchill" and "Churchill in His Own Words" His next book is "Winston Churchill, Urban Myths and Reality."
