Review: The Duel: The Eighty-Day Struggle Between Churchill and Hitler

User Review  - Goodreads

Wonderful for 1) the perhaps exaggerated narrative structure of divine coincidences between Hitler and Churchill, 2) the huge presence of Lukacs's authorial voice and wealth of quotes, and 3) the correction of many historical misconceptions about WWII. Read full review

User Review  - Goodreads

I really appreciate the pleasure of reading histories that cover a short period of time. This book positively drips with the author's adoration of Winston Churchill. If I weren't already a member of the Churchill fan club, Lukacs would have converted me. Read full review
