«History books should give us insight and information, surprise and entertainment, and allow us to see the world, an incident or a character differently. Nicholas Shakespeare’s Six Minutes in May delivers in abundance.»

Anthony Sattin, Observer, Best Books of 2017

«Unputdownable… Us[es] new evidence with a novelist’s feeling for personality and atmosphere»

John Gray, Guardian, Best Books of 2017

«Of the abundant new books on the Second World War, Nicholas Shakespeare’s Six Minutes in May…takes the prize. The familiar story of how Churchill unexpectedly became prime minister in 1940 has never been told so amusingly, nor in such detail»

Simon Heffer, Daily Telegraph, Best History Books of 2017

«Nicholas Shakespeare’s Six Minutes in May: How Churchill Unexpectedly Became Prime Minister…is as gripping as a novel. Apart from being meticulously researched, thoroughly original and beautifully written, the book is an important reminder of the fact that the direction of history can change in a heartbeat»

Peter Frankopan, History Today, Best History Books of 2017

«An eloquent study in how quickly the political landscape can change -- and history with it»

The Economist, Books of the Year 2017
