The Day When...: Churchill
Churchill
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  The History Channel  |  May 7, 2019

On 28 May 1940, while the Wehrmacht crushed the allied armies in France, British officials are prepared to deal with Hitler. They even suggest a mediation from Mussolini. Alone against all in the war cabinet, Churchill, by his cleverness and willingness, finally convinced his collaborators to fight. Without him, the English government would have dealt with Germany with the illusion to preserve its empire: the course of the Second World War would have been upset.
