Shortly after assuming the office of Prime Minister in May 1940, Winston Churchill visited the Cabinet War Rooms to see for himself what preparations had been made to allow him and his War Cabinet to continue working, if, as was widely expected, heavy enemy air raids on London were to make life about ground intolerable. it was there, in the underground of the Cabinet Rooms which had been prepared for this eventuality, that he boldy announced to those around him: 'This is the room from which I will direct the war'. Since 1984 it has been the duty and privelege of the Imperial War Museum to preserve the Cabinet War Rooms and to make them accessible to as wide a public as piossible. What was once a secret known to few and open to even fewer, is now open to all. Here the highly charged atmosphere of the most critical days of the Second World War surrounds the visitor and history comes alive. Illustrated. 32 pp.
