Reviews

"[Hermiston] takes a firm grip, writes well and refreshes the [familiar] narrative with a substantial helping of original research. The result is an accessible political history, enlivened by shrewd, vivid portraits...Hermiston is excellent on the Labour contingent of Clement Attlee, Ernest Bevin, Herbert Morrison and Hugh Dalton, while showing how wrong it would be to claim that they dominated the home front." * History Today * "a forensic study...makes for gripping reading; it is a genuine page-turner, written in objective, but always absorbing, fashion." * Kentonline * "By the book's end the reader will be in no doubt that Churchill did an amazing job in holding together and directing the nation during one of its most difficult eras." * Sky and Bullets * "A must for anyone interested in British wartime politics... So much is known about Churchill and the struggles he faced during Britain's darkest hours that it is almost unimaginable that there could be still more information out there. But Roger Hermiston has proved otherwise, brilliantly examining the fraught relations...and the relentless internal difficulties facing Churchill for five horrendous years." * Soldier Magazine * "[Hermiston recalls] personalities now widely forgotten, and with evocative illustrations." * Church Times * "The war was won on the front line, in the air, at sea and on the factory floor. However, it might not have happened without the influence of the coalition government...it is all here in this excellent book by Roger Hermiston. Highly recommended!." * War History Online * "Roger Hermiston's bright idea [to explore the achievement of the coalition]... is so obviously right that it is surprising that no one, so far as I know, has done it before. His book is skilfully constructed... The sometimes tense relationships within the coalition make a good new slant on a familiar story, and Roger Hermiston tells it well." -- John Campbell * Finest Hour magazine * "In this highly readable account...the ideological differences and personality clashes between the large egos of Bevin and Morrison, Beaverbrook and Attlee are described in fascinating." -- Maj Stephen Coulson * The Lady * "Not only did this {Churchill's 1940-45 administration} Conservative-Labour-Liberal coalition steer Britain through its most perilous years and win the war, it also initiated social reforms that were to shape post-war Britain. These staggering achievements are brilliantly described in Hermiston's All Behind You, Winston." * Irish Independent * "Summer Reads Pick: `Of all political coalitions, the piece de resistance must be the 1940-45 administration: warring egos held together by sheer will' `Of all political coalitions, the piece de resistance must be the 1940-45 administration: warring egos held together by sheer will." * Sunday Telegraph * "Hermiston has written a gripping account, full of drama, personality and humour." -- Tim Bouverie * Daily Telegraph *
