Discussion led by Mark Heir.

The book is The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson published in 2020.  Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports, the author provides a new lens on London’s darkest year during the blitz through the day-to day experience of Churchill and his family and advisors.  Lots of intriguing insights and personal details.
