This magnificent volume, now in a smaller paperback format, gives you exclusive access to behind the glass partition at Churchill War Rooms, bringing you closer than ever before to where Churchill not only ran the war - but won it. Go behind closed doors to sit at Churchill's desk, open long-abandoned drawers and sift through seventy-year old papers. See the anxious scratches on the arms of Sir Winston's chair, pick up the phone that he used to speak to the president of the United States, and examine the map that loomed over his bed as he took his famous afternoon naps.

These are sights you can't experience on a tour of Churchill War Rooms; they are views that few people in the world have ever seen. But now you can walk where Churchill walked, and see what Churchill saw. Now you can discover the Secrets of Churchill's War Rooms.
