THE SPLENDID AND THE VILE begins on Winston Churchill's first day as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom; the same day, the Nazis invaded both Holland and Belgium. Larson describes Churchill's struggles over the following year to keep his empire and his family safe, and to convince Franklin D. Roosevelt that England would be a strong ally who could withstand Hitler's war machine until the very end.
