Winston Churchill was one of Britain's greatest leaders and an iconic figure. Prime minister twice (1940-45 and 1951-55), his political career - with its many ups and downs, controversies and achievements - spanned over sixty years from the reign of Queen Victoria to that of Queen Elizabeth II, its high point being his heroic and indomitable leadership during the Second World War. However, Churchill had, as a young army officer, taken part in the last great cavalry charge in British history; wrote a novel, a great deal of journalism and many works of history (winning the Nobel Prize for Literature); and, was a talented amateur painter. This Shire book provides an illustrated introduction to the story of this unique, flawed and brilliant individual.
