With the only work dedicated to Churchill and the Phoney War now over forty years old, this study is a timely reassessment of this important period in Churchill's life The author explores how Churchill, as First Lord, proposed to fight this new world war with particular attention given to his attempts to animate the Royal Navy, the British War Cabinet, and sometimes the Fre With the only work dedicated to Churchill and the Phoney War now over forty years old, this study is a timely reassessment of this important period in Churchill's life The author explores how Churchill, as First Lord, proposed to fight this new world war with particular attention given to his attempts to animate the Royal Navy, the British War Cabinet, and sometimes the French towards a more aggressive prosecution of the conflict. This is no mere retelling of events but a deep analysis of the decision-making process and Churchill unique involvement in it. Each chapter is a challenge to conventional wisdom; he offers instead extensive new insights into well-trodden territory and original analysis of the unexplored. The author shies from hagiography or unfettered criticism. Rather, as the title suggests, he concludes Churchill performance was decidedly mixed. A man of considerable strengths and many short-comings, he did some things well and some things poorly. Perhaps more important, the author will show that his responsibility for and culpability in the many failings of this time have not been well-judged. History has been too harsh at times and too generous at others.
