Churchill's six volume history of World War II-- the definitive work, remarkable both for its sweep and its sense of personal involvement, universally acknowledged as a magnificent historical reconstruction and an enduring work of literature. V. 1. The step-by-step decline into war, with Churchill becoming prime minister as "the tocsin was about to sound". V. 2. The eight uneasy, dangerous months from May to December 1940, as Britain stands isolated and Germany follows its war path. V. 3. The momentous year 1941: the Bismarck is sunk, Hitler marches on Russia, Japan strikes Pearl Harbor, and the Grand Alliance is formed. V. 4. From uninterrupted defeat to almost unbroken success: a year when Rommel is gradually thrown back in North Africa, and in the Pacific the tide turns. V. 5. The drive to victory between June 1943 and July 1944, as the Allies consolidate their achievements, with enormous difficulty and great divergence of opinion. V. 6. From Anglo-American landings in Normandy in June 1944 to the unconditional surrender of Japan in September 1945

Ignoring the unconditional love of the novelist Charles Marsden, Nina embarks on a series of sordid affairs before determining to marry an amiable fool, Sam Evans. While Nina is pregnant with Sam's child, she learns a horrifying secret known only to Sam's mother: insanity runs in the Evans family and could be inherited by any child of Sam's. Realizing that a child is essential to her own and to Sam's happiness, Nina decides on a "scientific" solution. She will abort Sam's child and conceive a child with the physician Ned Darrell, letting Sam believe that it is his. The plan backfires when Nina and Ned's intimacy leads to their falling passionately in love.
