From the Inside Flap:

Based on fifteen years? research in archives in Britain, France and America, John Charmley offers a fresh examination of the Churchill myth as created by official biographers and the man himself. The book describes Churchill?s long climb to power and influence and the human price which his ambitions exacted from those around him; it shows that his virtues and character were built on a heroic scale, so too were his faults and failures. This controversial reappraisal of Churchill made headlines and stirred an emotional debate about the great leader's conduct of World War II.

About the Author:

John Charmley is a lecturer in English History at the Univeristy of East Anglia. His previous books include the award-winning Duff Cooper, Lord Lloyd and the Decline of the British Empire, and Chamberlain and the Lost Peace.
