    FREE PDF Õ BOOK Never Surrender Æ JOHN KELLY Never SurrenderSubtitled “Winston Churchill and Britain’s Decision to fight Nazi Germany in the fateful summer of 1940” this book examines the early months of WWII from the perspective of Britain although the fate of France also features highly In some ways this excellent book reminded me of others I have read about the early days of the war and in particular the fall of the Chamberlain government; such as “Troublesome Young Men” by Lynne Olson or “Minsters at War” by Jonathan Schneer However this is a general look at the beginning of the war and would be a good place to start if you had little knowledge of the time period as well as app
