On the next Fresh Air, as we evaluate our president’s performance in a time of crisis, author Erik Larsen profiles a 20th-century statesman who led his nation at a time of peril. His 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.
