Product description

Distilled from years of meticulous research and documentation, filled with material unavailable when the earliest books of the official biography's eight volumes went to press, "Churchill" is a brilliant marriage of the hard facts of the public life and the intimate details of the private man. The result is a vital portrait of one of the most remarkable men of any age as well as a revealing depiction of a man of extraordinary courage and imagination.

Review quote

"Mr. Gilbert's job was to bring alive before his readers a man of extraordinary genius and scarcely less extraordinary destiny. He has done so triumphantly."-Hugh Brogan, "The New York Times Book Review" "A richly textured and deeply moving portrait of greatness."--"The Los Angeles Times" "By far the most lucid, comprehensive, and authoritative account of Churchill that has been offered in a single volume. It furnishes a crown to Gilbert's already prodigious labors."--Philip Ziegler, "The Telegraph "(London) "It would seem impossible to distill the eight volumes of Churchill's authorized biography into a single volume, even one of a thousand pages. But that is what Martin Gilbert has done, and the result does not seem pinched at all. It is of course a grand story."--"The Washington Post Book World" "The most scholarly study of Churchill in war and peace ever written . . . essential diplomatic history and enlightening personal history."--Herbert Mitgang, "The New York Times"
