Was 1942 the decisive year of World War II? Historian Taylor Downing argues that it is, and he is this week’s guest on the Leaders and Legends podcast. Taylor is the author of “1942: Winston Churchill and Britain’s Darkest Hour.” It is a wonderfully written and very informative book, and I hope you enjoy our conversation.  Sponsors    About Veteran Strategies  ‘Leaders and Legends’ is brought to you by Veteran Strategies—your local veteran business enterprise specializing in media relations, crisis communications, public outreach, and digital photography.
