內容簡介



「一個真實的故事精采地被敘述給讀者們,內容經過透徹的研究,讓人上癮般地好讀」─Michael F. Bishop, Executive Director of the International Churchill Society

他對整個國家、整個世界,甚至是歷史發表談話…


一九四零年,正值大戰中的英國,人心惶惶,德軍的入侵似乎就在幾個小時之後,上位只有幾天的邱吉爾馬上就面對了這樣的慘況。

除了安定人心,邱吉爾還要努力取得皇室的信任,在這樣內憂外患三方交夾的壓力下,邱吉爾成功達到目的,其中戰時發表的演講直到今日都還是為人津津樂到的經典,透過作者麥卡騰之手,讓讀者對於邱吉爾的認同更深刻。

作者安東尼•麥卡騰是電影《愛的萬物論》編劇,本書由知名電影公司Working Title Film買下電影版權,二零一七年上映後受到好評,飾演邱吉爾的蓋瑞‧歐德曼在其中的精彩演譯,被視為奧斯卡金像獎最佳男主角的有力競爭者,電影將於二零一八年在台灣上映。

From the prize-winning screenwriter of The Theory of Everything, this is a cinematic, behind-the-scenes account of a crucial moment which takes us inside the mind of one of the world's greatest leaders - and provides a revisionist, more rounded portrait of his leadership.

May, 1940. Britain is at war, European democracies are falling rapidly and the public are unaware of this dangerous new world. Just days after his unlikely succession to Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, faces this horror - and a sceptical King and a party plotting against him. He wonders how he can capture the public mood and does so, magnificently, before leading the country to victory.

It is this fascinating period that Anthony McCarten captures in this deeply researched, gripping day-by-day (and often hour-by-hour) narrative. In doing so he revises the familiar view of Churchill - he made himself into the iconic figure we remember and changed the course of history, but through those turbulent and dangerous weeks he was plagued by doubt, and even explored a peace treaty with Nazi Germany. It's a scarier, and more human story, than has ever been told.
