Allport Britain at BayAssociate Professor of History Alan Allport's new book, "Britain at Bay: The Epic Story of the Second World War: 1938-1941," was recently reviewed in the Wall Street Journal. "Britain at Bay"...might be the single best examination of British politics, society and strategy in these four years that has ever been written," says Paul Kennedy. "I put my copy down with deep satisfaction. History writing, and historical scholarship, sometimes seems as fine as ever it was."
