Becoming Minister of Defence as well as Prime Minister in May 1940, Winston Churchill was ready to get his hands dirty and take personal control of military policy.

With full responsibility for Britain's success or failure in war effort, he would be faced with monumental challenges and crucial decisions upon which the fate of Britain and the free world rest.

How to respond to the collapse of France was one example of this and ordering Admiral Sommerville to sink the French fleet at Mers-el-Kebir demonstrated to the world that he was determined to wage war 'whatever the cost may be'.

But should Churchill have concentrated on the defence of the realm or take the war to the enemy?

Where should any offensive action be focused? How much support should be offered to the Soviet Union?

Delve into the insightful investigation into Churchill's conduct during the Second World War as Allen Packwood shares the agonies and uncertainties faced at each crucial stage.
