Winston Churchill towers over every other figure in twentieth-century British history. By the time of his death at the age of 90 in 1965, many thought him to be the greatest man in the world.
Andrew Robert’s new biography interprets many pivotal events in Churchill’s political career, especially his leadership during the Second World War, which he sees through the prism of the iconic politician’s earlier life. He gives full visibility to Churchill’s flaws, while also explaining his genius.
