#1649: Erik Larson's “The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz,” | The Book Show
/

Erik Larson is known for expertly transporting readers to past worlds. Even stories we think we know come to life in a different way once in his hands.

His latest, “The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz,” takes us into the heart of war-torn England for the period of May 10, 1940, through May 10, 1941, which was Winston Churchill’s first year as prime minister.
