June 11, 1940...It seems that day is missing in the records of the British Government regarding the actions of Winston Churchill. Mr. Deighton has an explanation, one that would seriously alter the history of Britain. It would also destroy the career of an historian named George Lukacs, if it were true. But LD makes a very interesting thriller out of it. I wouldn't do a spoiler here

Unconvincing and brutal.
