1944. Tensions mount for beleaguered British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the days leading up to the infamous Allied D-Day landings in Normandy, France. Fearful of repeating his deadly mistakes from World War I’s Battle of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression, and obsessed with his historical destiny, Churchill is reluctant to embark on the large-scale campaign—one that the entire war effort hinges upon. Clashing with his Allied political opponents, U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower and British Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery, the troubled Churchill receives support and devotion from his wife, the brilliant and unflappable Clementine Churchill. With her strength and shrewdness, “Clemmie” halts Winston’s physical, mental, and spiritual collapse, and inspires him on to greatness.
