Never surrender : Winston Churchill and Britain's decision to fight Nazi Germany in the fateful summer of 1940 by John Kelly( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"London in April 1940 is a place of great fear and conflict. Everyone is on edge; civilization itself seems imperiled. The Germans are marching. They have taken Poland, France, Holland, Belgium, and Czechoslovakia. The Nazi war machine--especially the bomber squadrons of the Luftwaffe--now menaces London and the English coast. Britain has seen its soldiers trapped by the Germans at Dunkirk and Hitler parade into Paris, even as America remains uncommitted to providing military aid. Should Britain negotiate with Germany or fight? The members of the war cabinet bicker, yell, and are divided. Winston Churchill, leading the pro-fight faction, and Lord Halifax, the imposing foreign secretary who cautions that prudence is the way to survive, attempt to usurp each other's power. Their country is on the line, and, in Never Surrender, we are alongside these complex and imperfect men as they determine the fate of the British Empire. Drawing on the War Cabinet papers and other government documents, private diaries, newspaper reports, and memoirs, historian John Kelly recounts the agonizing months of spring and summer 1940, when all the world watched England debate the 'Supreme Question' of whether to capitulate to Germany or prepare for a brutal attack. Impressive in scope and yet attentive to detail, Never Surrender takes readers from the battlefield to Parliament, the government ministries, the British high command, the desperate Anglo-French conference in Paris and London, and life with ordinary Britons. Day by day, we see Churchill rise to the historical moment and inspire his government and people to stiffen their resolve and to fight with all they have and everything at stake. Kelly brings to life one of the most heroic moments of the twentieth century and intimately portrays some of its biggest players--Churchill, Halifax, Hitler, FDR, and others. Never Surrender is a fabulous, grand narrative of a crucial period in World War II history and of the men and women who shaped it."--Dust jacket

The graves are walking : a history of the great Irish famine by John Kelly( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Irish famine that began in 1845 was one of the nineteenth century's greatest disasters. By its end, the island's population of eight million had shrunk by a third through starvation, disease and emigration. This is a brilliant, compassionate retelling of that awful story for a new generation - the first account for the general reader for many years and a triumphant example of narrative non-fiction at its best. The immediate cause of the famine was a bacterial infection of the potato crop on which too many the Irish poor depended. What turned a natural disaster into a human disaster was the determination of senior British officials to use relief policy as an instrument of nation-building in their oldest and most recalcitrant colony. Well-meaning civil servants were eager to modernise Irish agriculture and to improve the Irish moral character, which was utterly lacking in the virtues of the new age of triumphant capitalism. The result was a relief programme more concerned with fostering change than of saving lives

Impressive in scope and attentive to detail, Kelly takes listeners from the battlefield to Parliament, to the government ministries, to the British high command, to the desperate Anglo-French conference in Paris and London, to the American embassy in London, and to life with the ordinary Britons
