Churchill (Google eBook)
An elegant, concise, and revealing portrait of the inimitable leader.
Paul Johnson's books are acknowledged as masterpieces of historical analysis. In Churchill, he offers a lively, succinct exploration of one of the most complex and fascinating personalities in history. Winston Churchill's hold on contemporary readers has never slackened, and this exploration of his life casts new light on one of history's most intriguing figures. Johnson illuminates the various phases of Churchill's career-from his adventures as a young cavalry officer in the service of the empire to his role as an elder statesman prophesying the advent of the Cold War-and shows how Churchill's immense adaptability and innate pugnacity made him a formidable leader for the better part of a century.
