9780143112648: Winston Churchill (Penguin Lives Biographies)

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
