Destiny in the desert : the road to El Alamein : the battle that turned the tide by Jonathan Dimbleby( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the full story of the desert victory that cleared a path into Europe during World War II. It was the British victory at the Battle of El Alamein in November 1942 that inspired one of Churchill's most famous aphorisms: it is not the end nor is it the beginning of the end, but it is the end of the beginning. This book describes the political and strategic realities that lay behind the battle, charting the nail-biting months that led to the victory at El Alamein in November 1942. It is a story of high drama, played out both in the war capitals of London, Washington, Berlin, Rome and Moscow, and at the front, in the command posts and foxholes in the desert. El Alamein is about politicians and generals, diplomats, civil servants and soldiers. It is about forceful characters and the tensions and rivalries between them. Drawing on official records and the personal insights of those involved at every level, Dimbleby creates a vivid portrait of a struggle which for Churchill marked the turn of the tide - and which for the soldiers on the ground involved fighting and dying in a foreign land

Michael Gove( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Dimbleby interviews Shadow Schools Secretary Michael Gove about his claim that the Conservatives are better equipped than Gordon Brown's Labour Government to deliver the best future for children in the state school system. At his party conference last month Gove claimed social justice as his goal and emphasised the scandal of a system where divisions in attainment between rich and poor widen as a child progresses through school. In this programme, Jonathan Dimbleby - one of Britain's toughest and most forensic political interviewers - will explore Gove's vision for a compassionate Conservative education policy and press him on the policies which he claims will deliver change and advance social justice. The Dimbleby Interview will offer one of the first serious tests of Gove's tenure as Shadow Schools Secretary providing a first glimpse of how one of David Cameron's closest allies hopes to transform education under a future Conservative Government

Breaking the ice by Hugh Thomson( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was Winston Churchill who talked about the Russians in terms of riddles, enigmas and mysteries. One of the reasons for that is, of course, that there's been a long period of great secrecy in Russia, which has only just really, in historical terms, come to an end. Then, traveling on a train for a reporter would have been a complete nightmare: passes, permits, minders, people viewing you with a lot of suspicion. And the difference between then and now is, is quite extraordinary
