Britain From Churchill to Blair

September 4, 2014 With David Cannadine

Thus from the beginnings of World War II to Blair’s entry of the UK into Iraq. Cannadine, one of the great generation of post-war British historians, combines wonderful stories in high narrative style with a rich theory of the changing nature of British politics and culture. Do listen, as well, for some wonderful sound clips of Churchill at the top of his form as war leader. The program dates from 2003.
