Publisher Description

One of the greatest historians writing today gives us a defining portrait of the incomparable Winston Churchill

In his landmark biography of Winston 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.

GOOD

A decent book, but it should have been longer in page length, so as to provide more insight into the man, known as Sir Winston Churchill. I was hoping for additional information about how he saw Communism, Socialism, and their inherent evils in these political theories, which are evil and debase its citizens.

Review

I'm a Keegan fan. This account of Churchill's life is nice and concise. Although I thought I was already familiar with the topic it turns out I really wasn't. I had no idea he "crossed the aisle" twice. His life was a complicated one but this account put it all in context. Keegan's style is complex but always rewarding for those who tough it out. If you want to know a lot about the man and what made him great, warts and all, this is for you.
