Churchill: A Life follows Winston Churchill from his earliest days to his moments of triumph. Here, the drama and excitement of his story are ever-present. Martin Gilbert gives us a vivid portrait, using Churchill's most personal letters and the recollections of his contemporaries, both friends and enemies, to go behind the scenes of some of the stormiest and most fascinating political events of our time.
Part 2 takes us from the end of the First World War to Churchill’s death in 1965. Christian Rodska reads the second part of Martin Gilbert’s epic, definitive biography of Winston Churchill.

Interesting and compelling

Superb narrator. Exciting and energetic narrative. Account of Churchill politically illuminating but some lack of complexity in regard to components of his personality and the historical events to which he devoted himself.

Wonderful insight and inspiration can be drawn from Churchill's biography

I was born two years before WW2 commenced. Churchill's story has given me a comprehensive view of all the snippets I have gleaned in nearly seventy nine years of life. It underlines so much of a perspective that I would wish to bequeath to my grandchildren and their contemporaries. Christian Rodska's use of voices and accents gives remarkable clarity and life to the the persons described and the sources quoted by the author. Churchill's statesmanship could provide a great example and antidote to the shallow and selfish politics of today.
