On May 10, 1940, Britain’s new prime minister strode purposefully down to the basement of an anonymous government building and entered a top secret command center. “This,” growled Winston Churchill, “is the room from which I will run the war.” At the war’s end, Churchill and his colleagues left the chamber and locked the door behind them—and the War Rooms remained there, untouched and little known, until the early 1980s. Today, those historic chambers are on display as the Churchill War Rooms exhibit.
 
The Churchill War Rooms Guidebook provides an inside view of Britain’s wartime nerve center. In this concise, but informative reference, readers can meet the people who worked at the War Rooms, see how the work carried out in this underground bunker helped Britain win the war, and delve into the life story of the man himself—Winston Churchill. Highly illustrated, this is an accessible overview of one of Britain’s most significant historic sites.
