?This is a magnificent novel. It will hold the reader's fascination from beginning to end.?
This stunning historical novel brings you deep inside Winston Churchill's mind and heart as he becomes Prime Minister and takes on the terrifying challenge of halting Hitler's murderous invasion of France, Holland and Belgium with only his wits and his magnificent words. Only his courage stands between the people of the British Isles and advancing enemy armies as they drive his retreating soldiers onto the beaches of Dunkirk and into the English channel. You will live at Churchill's side as he deals with his own feelings of inadequacy while contending with his fellow ministers, who plot to throw him out of office. And you will be the fly on the wall of history as he matches wits with Hitler in the most crucial battlefield of all, the battlefield of the mind.

-Finest Hour, magazine of the Churchill Center
This extraordinary work of historical fiction by bestselling author Michael Dobbs finds Winston Churchill at his lowest ebb-pitted in a personal confrontation with Adolf Hitler and the ghosts from his past.
The battle begins on Friday, May 10, 1940, when Hitler launches a devastating attack that within days will overrun France, Holland and Belgium and bring Britain to its knees at Dunkirk. Never Surrender is about Churchill's courage and defiance, his ability to lead a nation during three of the most crucial weeks in its history. Without the physical forces necessary to stave off German attack, Churchill uses the force of words to stand in Hitler's way, to show that no accords will be made.
To read this book is to live these tense days at Churchill's side, to experience his feelings of deep inadequacy as he deals with defeatist ministers, intransigent generals and a military disaster of biblical proportion.
