Andreas Koureas

Andreas is a historian reading Political Economy at King’s College London. His main focus of research is on Sir Winston Churchill and the British Empire.

He is published in academic institutions like Hillsdale College and outlets like that of The Spectator.

For the past two years he has been working on a paper for a peer reviewed journal on Churchill and the Bengal Famine - out late 2024.

His forthcoming book, Churchill: Marching Through The Fire, May 1940 - June 1941, will focus on one of the most momentous periods in history.

It follows the timeline of Winston Churchill from his appointment as Prime Minister in May 1940, to the fall of France and the subsequent lonely year where Britain and her Empire maintained the struggle alone (as the only major power) till the Nazi invasion of the USSR in June 1941.

Both the thesis and the title of this book stem from an iconic broadcast he gave in November 1939 - then as First Lord of the Admiralty, ‘It may well be that the final extinction of a baleful domination will pave the way to a broader solidarity of all the men in all the land, than we could ever have planned; if we had not marched together through the fire.’

Though Churchill certainly marched through the fire, it was far more lonesome than generally understood. Remaining at the epicentre of the campaign of resistance, Andreas' book will show just how isolated his wartime journey was: from France’s capitulation, to the War Cabinet crisis, the Battle of Britain and more.

Andreas plans to delve into often forgotten moments of the war, like when Churchill had to confront the hellish reality that the one ally he desperately needed - Roosevelt - initially had no confidence in him and thought both he and Britain would collapse.
