One of the greatest historians writing today gives us a defining portrait of the incomparable Churchill
Acclaimed historian John Keegan offers a very human portrait of one of the twentieth century's enduring symbols of heroic defiance. From Churchill's youth as a poor student to his leadership during World War II, Keegan reveals a man whose own idea of an English past- eloquently embodied in his speeches-allowed him to exhort a nation to unprecedented levels of sacrifice. The result is a uniquely discerning look at one of the most fascinating personalities in history.
"An accomplished and seductive book."
-The Times Literary Supplement "Stands out as a model of insightfulness about an immense historical personality who helped to shape the world we live in."
"Masterfully covers nearly all aspects of Churchill's illustrious career with knowledgeable insight and sympathy."
