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.

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.
