When Churchill died, one might have thought that it was not a man who was being borne to his grave, but British history itself - a resplendent, fortunate history whose last illustrious chapter Churchill himself had written almost a quarter of a century before.

About the Author

Sebastian Haffner was "one of the outstanding figures in European journalism." Guardian (1999).

He emigrated to London from Berlin in the 1930s and became a vocal critic of the Nazi regime, writing influential articles in the Observer. After the war, he became Germany's pre-eminent political commentator. His many books include Germany, Jekyll and Hyde and The Meaning of Hitler and most recently, Defying Hitler : A Memoir (Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2002).
