Last Hope Island : Britain, occupied Europe, and the brotherhood that helped turn the tide of war / Lynne Olson

Publication | Library Call Number: D810.G6 O46 2017

When the Nazi Blitzkrieg subjugated Europe in World War II, London became the safe haven for the leaders of seven occupied countries -- France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Norway, Czechoslovakia and Poland -- who fled there to avoid imprisonment and set up governments in exile to commandeer their resistance efforts. The lone hold-out against Hitler's offensive, Britain became a beacon of hope to the rest of Europe, as prominent European leaders like French general Charles De Gaulle, Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, and King Haakon of Norway competed for Winston Churchill's attention while trying to rule their embattled countries from the precarious safety of Last Hope Island.
