Churchill V19 coverHillsdale College Press has published the latest installment in the Official Biography of Sir Winston Churchill. Fateful Questions tells Churchill’s story during the final four months of 1943 and the first months of 1944 over an astonishing 2728 pages of documents. It serves as the third companion volume to Winston S. Churchill, Volume VII, Road to Victory, by Sir Martin Gilbert. This is the second volume of The Churchill Documents edited by Dr. Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College and former research assistant to Sir Martin.

This volume relates Churchill’s story from the invasion of mainland Italy to the final preparations for Operation Overlord. During these eight months, Churchill traveled nearly 14,000 miles, wrote more than 1,800 pieces of correspondence, and delivered over a dozen speeches. As the tide of the war turned in favor of the Allies, Churchill focused his attention and energy on matters such as the Italian campaign and its early stagnation, the three major Allied conferences at the end of 1943, the bombing campaign executed by the British and Americans against the German homeland, and the desperate need for landing craft to deploy in the impending cross-Channel invasion.
