Winston Churchill: A Life (Google eBook)
One of the greatest historians writing today gives us a defining portrait of the incomparable Winston Churchill
In his landmark biography of Winston 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.
“The best military historian of our generation.” –Tom Clancy

I liked learning about Churchill but I disliked the writing style and some of the choices the author made. I plan on finding a better biography to read on him some day. Read full review

Brief and to the point. Usually I don't read biographies, but this one was short enough to be enjoyable. Learned a lot about the man and happy to check another Keegan book off the list.
