Yet together, as foils, confidants, conspirators and comrades, the unlikely duo guided Britain through war while inspiring renewed hope in the monarchy, Parliament, and the nation itself. In Churchill and the King, Kenneth Weisbrode explores the delicate fashioning of this important, though largely overlooked, relationship. Despite their differences, the trust and loyalty they eventually shared helped Britain navigate the most trying time in its history.
