Response to Movie" Darkest Hour "

This movie is on my list for this week. Too cold to be out so a good time to go enjoy a very good movie like this.
I would also like to suggest a very good book that has a lot of information about that period, and more. "Churchill's Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare". It was Churchill who countered the backwards thinking of the career Army officers and pushed for the shadow warriors. He knew that if the Germans came to England they might win. Britten was on her knees and needed hope. It was truly a dark time for her.

Good read, hard to put down once you start on it. Lots of first person accounts of a very dark time in British history.
