Based on his recently published book Command: How the Allies Learned to Win the Second World War, Al Murray will highlight the performance and careers of some of the leading protagonists who commanded armies, as well as the lesser-known officers who led divisions, regiments and even battalions for the British, Commonwealth and United States of American armies.

By showcasing each combat commander across every major theatre of operations the allies fought in, Murray tells the story of how the Western Allies rebounded from early shocking defeats (Dunkirk and Pearl Harbor) to then victories (El Alamein and D-Day) in its efforts to defeat the Axis forces of Nazi Germany and Japan, and what that tells us about the characters and the challenges that faced them.

Al Murray is best known as a multi-award winning stand-up comedian. His ‘Pub Landlord’ character has become a much-loved comedy institution. However, Al has always had a passion for history and hosts the podcast We Have Ways of Making You Talk with military author James Holland. Command is Al’s first venture into book-length history but it has received extremely positive reviews and been praised for bringing a unique perspective to some of the key characters andevents of the Second World War.
