How Churchill Got Britian Through the Blitz 28

Sept. 7, 1940 in Britain began as a perfectly pleasant day. By 5 p.m., the German bombing started, which continued for 57 consecutive nights. Life changed in an instant and citizens looked to their leader, “The Bulldog,” for guidance. Author Erik Larson joins host Krys Boyd to talk about Winston Churchill’s bold leadership style that willed his nation back from the brink. Larson’s new book is called “The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz.”
