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."
-The Economist

"Masterfully covers nearly all aspects of Churchill's illustrious career with knowledgeable insight and sympathy."
-Forbes
