The Road To 1945 : British Politics and the Second World War Revised Edition Paperback
by Paul Addison
The Road to 1945 is a rigorously researched study of the crucial moment when political parties put aside their differences to unite under Churchill and focus on the task of war.
But the war years witnessed a radical shift in political power - dramatically expressed in Labour's decisive electoral victory in 1945.
In his acclaimed study, Paul Addison reconstructs and interprets the five-year wartime coalition, and traces this sea-change from its roots in the thirties, to the powerful spirit of post-war rebuilding. The Road to 1945 is an imaginative, brilliantly written and landmark work, underpinned by a powerful and expertly researched argument.
