Review:

Reminds us that is still possible, at a time when irony and cynicism are so much the fashion, to pay tribute to greatness without being hagiographical. ( New Republic)

Splendid....A marvel of densely researched scholarship expertly sifted and presented with misleading ease in an elegant prose style. ( The Washington Times)

An astonishingly fresh and original study that renders all previous short biographies out of date."- Times Literary Supplement

We are all worms. But I do believe I am a glow-worm. ( Winston Churchill)

Excellent. ( New York Review of Books)

The best first book to read about Churchill. ( National Review)
