By Andrew Adonis


As a statesman, Ernest Bevin is second only to Churchill in impact and legacy. As Minister of Labour from 1940 to 1945, he was the nation’s wartime mobiliser-in-chief. As post-war Foreign Secretary, Bevin was Britain’s last world power envoy and did much to stabilise and democratise Europe and to pave the way for the European Union. Andrew Adonis brings to life one of our greatest statesmen – a politician whose light is often unjustly hidden beneath that of his more celebrated contemporaries.
