On the next Fresh Air, we look at a renowned 20th-century statesman who led his nation at a time of peril -- Winston Churchill. Dave talks with historian Erik Larsen whose new book focuses on Winston Churchill’s first year in office when Britain endured a ferocious Nazi bombing campaign. He says Churchill told his citizens the truth and inspired them to resist. The book is called The Splendid and the Vile. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
