schema:reviewBody""These long-awaited diaries of Sir Alan 'Tommy' Lascelles, now published by permission of Her Majesty the Queen, throw new light on the way in which King George VI and his Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, worked together during the Second World War." "Among numerous other revelations, the author describes how he personally stopped monarch and politician sailing on board the lead cruiser during operation 'Overlord', the D-Day attack on the French coast in June 1944. He also tells, for the first time, the full story of his own sudden elevation to the post of the King's principal Private Secretary, in place of Sir Alec Hardinge, in July 1943. Yet it is the war, seen from the commanding heights of Buckingham Palace and No. 10 Downing Street, that dominates these journals. King's Counsellor gives an unique picture of the royal family in action at a critical period in the life of the nation."--BOOK JACKET."
