Secrets of Churchills War Rooms

On 10 May 1940, Britain's new Prime Minister strode purposefully down to the basement of an anonymous government building and entered a top secret command centre. 'This,' growled Winston Churchill, 'is the room from which I will run the war.'

This magnificent new volume gives you exclusive access to those 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 up 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.

Jonathan Asbury is the author of the official Churchill War Rooms guidebook, as well as guidebooks for HMS Belfast, IWM London, IWM North, and IWM Duxford.
