Lynne Olson talked about her book, Troublesome Young Men. She described the British Parliament in the 1930s and 1940s, focusing on a key group of members that rebelled against the Conservative Party and Prime Minister Chamberlain’s stance on Hitler. Ms. Olson said it was due to the continued challenges of this group of Tories that Neville Chamberlain was forced to resign. After her presentation she responded to audience members' questions.
Lynne Olson also wrote Freedom’s Daughter, The Murrow Boys, and A Question of Honor which she co-authored with Stanley Cloud. She was formerly a reporter in the Washington bureau for the Baltimore Sun. close
