The Opposition Years offers a unique analysis of Winston Churchill's leadership of the Conservative Party, from the Tory's crushing defeat in the 1945 General Election to its triumphant return to government office in 1951. This study focuses on the crucial significance of Churchill's leadership style that enabled the Tories to restructure the party's organization and rethink conservative approaches to the welfare state.
