RHINEBECK, N.Y. -- Oblong Books & Music in Rhinebeck is commemorating Veterans Day with Historian John Kelly, author of "Never Surrender: Winston Churchill and Britain's Decision to Fight Nazi Germany in the Fateful Summer of 1940."

Kelly's vivid account captures a key moment in Western history: The critical six months when Winston Churchill debated whether the British would fight Hitler.

Drawing on the War Cabinet papers, other government documents, private diaries, newspaper accounts, and memoirs, Kelly tells the story in vivid detail, taking readers from the battlefield to Parliament, to the government ministries, to the desperate Anglo-French conference in Paris and London, and to life with ordinary Britons.

The event is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11. Information: 6422 Montgomery St. (845) 876-0500, www.oblongbooks.com/ .
