'This survey of British political crises is invaluable for anyone concerned with politics today, and it reinforces George Santayana's dictum that those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it... This book is full of lessons for politicians in the 21st century and also a fascinating read in its own right.' -- Denis Healey, BBC History magazine Kevin Jeffery's authoritative and entertaining book is about the twelve key events in British politics since the Second World War, how they influenced the years that followed them and what Britain might have been like had they not occurred. Combining vivid character portraits with subtle, often highly revisionist, analysis of the unfolding crises, Finest and Darkest Hours ranges from Winston Churchill's accession to the premiership in 1940 through to the emergence of New Labour in 1994, and identifies precisely how significant these episodes really were. 'A well-written romp through the juiciest moments in postwar history' New Statesman 'A good, racy read' Anthony Howard, Books of the Year, Sunday Times 'Addicts of "what if" speculation will love this book' Financial Times 'Politicians don't take good advice: this is what this brilliant book is about' The Herald

From the acclaimed novelist and screenwriter of The Theory of Everything comes a revelatory look at the period immediately following Winston Churchill’s ascendancy to Prime Minister—soon to be a major motion picture starring Gary Oldman. “He was speaking to the nation, the world, and indeed to history...” May, 1940. Britain is at war. The horrors of blitzkrieg have seen one western European democracy after another fall in rapid succession to Nazi boot and shell. Invasion seems mere hours away. Just days after becoming Prime Minister, Winston Churchill must deal with this horror—as well as a skeptical King, a party plotting against him, and an unprepared public. Pen in hand and typist-secretary at the ready, how could he change the mood and shore up the will of a nervous people? In this gripping day-by-day, often hour-by-hour account of how an often uncertain Churchill turned Britain around, the celebrated Bafta-winning writer Anthony McCarten exposes sides of the great man never seen before. He reveals how he practiced and re-wrote his key speeches, from ‘Blood, toil, tears and sweat’ to ‘We shall fight on the beaches’; his consideration of a peace treaty with Nazi Germany, and his underappreciated role in the Dunkirk evacuation; and, above all, how 25 days helped make one man an icon. Using new archive material, McCarten reveals the crucial behind-the-scenes moments that changed the course of history. It’s a scarier—and more human—story than has ever been told. “McCarten's pulse-pounding narrative transports the reader to those springtime weeks in 1940 when the fate of the world rested on the shoulders of Winston Churchill. A true story thrillingly told. Thoroughly researched and compulsively readable.”—Michael F. Bishop, Executive Director of the International Churchill Society

Here is Jay Robert Nash's exhaustive chronology of world disaster's—900 disasters, from sinking ships to famines treated in-depth, often accompanied by eye-witness accounts and illustrations. But Darkest Hour is no mere listing, no dry catalog of events. In hundreds of instances Nash's research led him behind the event itself to the intensely human story of reactions to catastrophe. He has put together fascinating accounts of incredible courage and heroism. In the Anchorage, Alaska quake of 1964: “Dr. Perry Mead, Anchorage's only neurosurgeon, was operating on victims when he was told his twelve year-old son had attempted to rescue his baby brother and had been killed along with the baby. The valiant doctor, tears streaming down his face, continued his operation.” Nash has also recorded equally compelling tales of extreme cowardice, avarice and greed. The descriptive accounts cover air crashes, mine disasters, storms, catastrophes at sea, train wrecks, and many others. In most cases, a prerequisite for inclusion in the general narrative was that the event must have taken the lives of twenty or more persons. An invaluable reference tool for both specialists and the general public, Darkest Hours also makes intriguing reading in its own right.

No one is immune to crime. Behind the Darkest Hours is the realization that the road back into living a new life is a process. Victims’ lives aren’t neatly wrapped up in a one-hour drama and a myth called closure. You never forget the loss. It is a true inspirational and powerful story of prayer, faith, and forgiveness that brought us from personal tragedies to public triumphs. The general public only gets a glimpse of real-life tragedies from media visualization and media sensationalism, without a real understanding of daily living for the families involved. When bystanders turn off the news, they go to sleep and forget, while those families weep. Behind the Darkest Hours is a source of encouragement and strength to victims and their families to survive beyond the pain and agony of victimization. It’s an encouragement for everyone to hold on to hope. Even in the most horrific circumstances, we can still survive. Most importantly, God is still present. Readers should be encouraged to know that God is trustworthy and he honors faith.

Author's note: This novel is meant to be read after book 10 of the Latvala Royals series. It has been two decades since full-scale war visited Latvala's shores. The threat from larger powers has existed for years, a threat Sander has thus far successfully avoided. But while recovering from a brutal winter, Sander finds himself summoned to Imatra after King Aleksi calls for aid. There have been attacks at the border and Aleksi fears the worst. In the middle of helping his brethren rout out the invaders, Sander receives a message he'd hoped to avoid: Latvala and Somero are also under attack. On the flight back to Kallaster Castle, disaster strikes. The plane is going down. Sander, Mattias, Leander and Jeremiah's lives hang in the balance. While the men fight for survival, Elias assumes control of Latvala's throne and plots to conquer the enemy. The time for him to step into the role of king is at hand. Will Elias and his family succeed in defending their country? Or is the time of Latvala at an end? Find out if the Ahtissari's prevail and whether Chey winds up at the altar a second time in Darkest Hour, book 11 in the Latvala Royals series.
