Each book in the "Great Lives" series tells the life story of famous men and women of the past and present. This book gives an account of the life of Winston Churchill, the great British statesman. It describes his privileged childhood and background, his developing military interest, his participation as a journalist in the Boer War, his entry into Parliament, the part he played in World War I and his long political career. The author also examines both his strengths and weaknesses. Rupert Matthews has written many children's books, including "Julius Caesar" for the "Great Lives" series.

Book Description Penguin Publishing Group, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 178 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780143112648
