Churchill and the Bomb in War and Cold War

1 - 2 Weken

Moving from the development of the atomic bomb during the Second World War to the Cold War and the advent of the hydrogen bomb, this book explores Winston Churchill's changing relationship with and views on nuclear weapons. Kevin Ruane explains how Churchill began to see the bomb as a weapon for keeping the peace. The story of Churchill's nuclear obsession and his quest to bring about an 'easement' in East-West tensions is a compelling one with important contemporary resonances. Drawing extensively on a range of sources, this book offers a fresh insight on a key phase of Churchill's long career.
