This outmoded attitude was one of the reasons the British voters rejected him after a Second World War in which he had led the country brilliantly. His attitude remained decidedly old-fashioned in a world that was shaping up very differently. This groundbreaking volume reveals the many facets of Churchill's personality: a visionary leader with a truly Victorian attitude toward the British Empire.

I loved it!
Great facts strung together in a compelling story, and read aloud in a most enjoyable manner. I've listened to the entire book twice, and will likely listen again. Very enjoyable and informative.

A fair assessment of Churchill and his Victorian ideaology. Good book overall. Much already covered in other books, but this concentrated on the empire ideal cherished by Churchill. Generally, I feel most writing on empire and Churchill's devotion to it is overly critical, and doesn't emphasize the good that empire did. This book is not guilty of that. Narrator, not great. And the recording, editing not great.
There is a better audio version, but not available in the states, or at least via audible. I'd recommend the story, just wish the narrator was more engaging.
