Synopsis

Winston Churchill The Story of the Great British Statesman by Harriet Castor

One of Britain's most intriguing and celebrated politicians, Winston Churchill was far more than a just successful wartime leader. International war correspondent, WWI soldier and Nobel Prize-winning writer, Churchill always had an unshakable faith in his own abilities, despite his disastrous efforts at school. His faith was rewarded when he became Prime Minister of Britain at the height of WWII. Working tirelessly, his tremendous ability to inspire the nation during such times of horror has become legendary. Above all, he will always be remembered as the man who led the allied forces to victory, freeing Europe from the tyranny of Nazism.

Reviews

This slim volume...seeks to encompass the most important elements of his whole career.... [I]t is a reminder of the generosity and humanity that always lay behind Churchill's outward bluster and bombast. * Finest Hour *
