247 pages, index, bibliography. Professor F.A. Lindemann was Winston Churchill's closest adviser during the Second World War. The two met almost daily and Lindemann, who became Lord Cherwell in 1941, spent weekends at Chequers. He accompanied Churchill to the great conferences with Allied leaders and was always at hand to provide advice, suggestions and the elucidation of complex scientific and economic issues. He was deeply involved in the controversy over intelligence reports about a German rocket and he supported atomic research.
