Known to many as a figure in the agenda setting team of Radio 4’s Today programme, Roger Hermiston turns his skills to the story of the most remarkable gathering of leaders in modern British history.

When Winston Churchill became Prime Minister in May 1940, his appointment was viewed with great unease by very many in his own party, let alone the rest of Westminster. However, Churchill assembled around him a Cabinet that went on to feed, fund, shelter, mobilise, arm, evacuate, heal and, ultimately, save Britain. All Behind You, Winston tells the behind-closed-doors story of each of the key figures inside this indefatigable War Ministry, delving deep into the archives to bring to life a coalition Cabinet that was both the brain and conscience of Britain and in many ways, of Churchill too.
