A detailed first hand account

This book includes:
- the events of the war,
- communications to/from Churchill,
- and also some German communications.
- I enjoyed that it was first hand, and includes his feelings, especially the last chapter when he becomes prime minister.

During war on each front the leaders complain of the inadequacy of their forces and want more. The central leadership needs to decide between those competing needs without offending their on-the-ground commanders. Deciding where to allocate resources when there is strain on many fronts becomes quite difficult among all the uncertainty of war.

Lots of details about the negotiations between the powers on how to proceed with the war. I am struck with the immense difference in complexity between board games that people plan and a real war spread across several continents.

Chapter 12: India
In the midst of Japanese powerful attacks and victories, India was charging Great Britain exorbitant fees for the defense of India, and also factions were agitating for independence.

It is striking how much more difficult a real war is than even the most complex simulation games.
- Uncertainty of the situation
- Shifting alliances - Uncertainty about the reliability of others
- The need to manage public opinion at home including opposition to one’s best efforts

Much of the book concerned details of communications with Stalin and the US president. I started skipping over those portions.

It ends with Churchill’s party being voted out of office just before the defeat of Japan.
