The King’s Speech was only the beginning
The broadcast that George VI made to the British nation on the outbreak of war in September 1939―which formed the climax of the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech―was the product of years of hard work with Lionel Logue, his iconoclastic, Australian-born speech therapist. Yet the relationship between the two men did not end there. In the years that followed, Logue was to play an even more important role at the monarch's side.
The King's War follows that relationship through the dangerous days of Dunkirk to eventual victory in 1945―and beyond. This gripping narrative provides a fascinating portrait of two men and their respective families―the Windsors and the Logues―as they together face the greatest challenge in Britain's history.
