Win a copy of Secrets of Churchill's War Rooms

To celebrate the arrival of award-winning blockbuster Dunkirk on Sky Movies Premiere, Sky are giving away Secrets of Churchill's War Rooms.

Hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops find themselves surrounded by enemy forces in the Northern French City of Dunkirk during 1940 World War II. There they face the impossible situation of being trapped on the beach with the sea at their backs, as the German troops close in. A quickly assembled British fleet led the legendary evacuation of over 300,000 Allied military forces in what Prime Minister Winston Churchill would call a “miracle of deliverance.” Starring Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy.

The prize

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. With Secrets of Churchill’s War Rooms, you can go behind the glass partitions that separate the War Rooms from the visiting public, closer than ever before to where Churchill not only ran the war—but won it. This magnificent volume offers up-close photography of details in every room and provides access to sights unavailable on a simple tour of Churchill War Rooms. These are views that few people in the world have ever seen. Go behind closed doors to sit at Churchill’s desk, open up long-abandoned drawers and sift through seventy-year-old papers. See the anxious scratches on the arms of Sir Winston’s chair, pick up the phone that he used to speak to the president of the United States, and examine the map that loomed over his bed as he took his famous afternoon naps.
 
Including more than three hundred detailed images and firsthand memories of Churchill as a leader, boss, father, husband, and a man, Secrets of Churchill’s War Rooms tells the fascinating story of the work carried out in these underground offices. – Amazon
