Product description

Winston Churchill's inspiring leadership in the Second World War once put him above criticism. In recent years, his record has come under attack. This book makes sense of this extraordinary man and his controversial and heroic career. Best brings out Churchill's strengths and weaknesses, looking past the many received versions of Churchill in a biography that balances the private and the public man and offers a fresh insight into his character.
