Abstract

This is a study of the development of Clement Attlee and the Labour Party from the collapse of the second Labour Government in August 1931, to their entry into Churchill's coalition in May 1940. It is an examination of how Labour became essential to the effective prosecution of the war, and how Attlee emerged from relative obscurity to become a central figure in the War Cabinet.
