The George VI broadcast that formed the climax of the multi Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech was the product of years of hard work with the speech therapist Lionel Logue.
Yet the relationship between the two men did not end there. The King’s War follows them through the dark days of Dunkirk and the drama of D-Day to eventual victory in 1945.
Written by Sunday Times journalist Peter Conradi, and Lionel’s grandson Mark Logue, the book draws on Lionel’s diaries and letters to paint a fascinating portrait of two men as they faced up to the greatest challenge in Britain’s history.
