The Darkest Year, Britain Alone: June 1940 – June 1941. By Herbert Agar. First American Edition. Published by Doubleday & Company, Inc., Garden City, New York, in 1973. Dust Jacket unclipped. Includes newspaper clipping about war. From June 22, 1940, when France surrendered to the Germans, until June 22, 1941, when Hitler invaded Russia, Britain alone stood against the German conquest of Europe. Herbert Agar’s theme is that this period of hardly credible survival saved the Western world; the inspiration of this book is his strong conviction that the full significance of that year is not completely appreciated even now. Agar focuses in depth on the historic months and the crucial events of that year, setting them in context and describing them vividly.
