520    "Combining epic history with rich family stories, Michael 
       Korda chronicles the outbreak of World War II and the 
       great events that led to Dunkirk. In an absorbing work 
       peopled with world leaders, generals, and ordinary 
       citizens who fought on both sides of World War II, Alone 
       brings to resounding life perhaps the most critical year 
       of twentieth-century history. For, indeed, May 1940 was a 
       month like no other, as the German war machine blazed into
       France while the supposedly impregnable Maginot Line 
       crumbled, and Winston Churchill replaced Neville 
       Chamberlain as prime minister in an astonishing political 
       drama as Britain, isolated and alone, faced a triumphant 
       Nazi Germany. Against this vast historical canvas, Michael
       Korda relates what happened and why, and also tells his 
       own story, that of a six-year-old boy in a glamorous movie
       family who would himself be evacuated. Alone is a work 
       that seamlessly weaves a family memoir into an 
       unforgettable account of a political and military disaster
       redeemed by the evacuation of more than 300,000 men in 
       four days--surely one of the most heroic episodes of the 
       war. "The incredible, almost miraculous story of what 
       happened at Dunkirk in the year 1940--and why--is unfolded
       in Alone with great narrative skill and superb delineation
       of a highly interesting cast of characters, including, 
       importantly, the author himself and his own remarkable 
       family." -- David McCullough
