This study examines the controversial career of Winston Churchill. Each contributor is considered an expert on some aspect of his life, and the resulting interplay of sometimes unflattering and critical ideas about his policies and motives gives insight into how he came to be considered "the saviour of his nation". This book is for students of world and British history, especially political historians of the 20th century. It should also be of interest to readers of biographies and Churchill enthusiasts.
