Churchill. The Greatest Briton Unmasked


Churchill. The Greatest Briton Unmasked by Nigel Knight

In his brand new assessment of Winston Churchill's political career Nigel Knight challenges the sentimental image of the great wartime leader and argues that Churchill's impact on Great Britain was, in fact, consistently disastrous. The author backs up his arguments with rigorous academic research to provide a fresh insight into Churchill's entire career This book covers Churchill's time as pre-war Chancellor and his contradictory economic policies. It also looks at his time as Prime Minister and his wartime blunders, as well as the post-war period when he failed to rectify his past errors. It includes 16 pages of fascinating archive photographs.
