This biography is a story of adventure. It follows Winston Churchill from his earliest days to his moments of triumph. The author highlights Churchill's qualities in peace and war, not least as an orator. Using Churchill's most personal letters and the recollections of his contemporaries, both friends and enemies, the author goes behind the scenes of some of the stormiest and most fascinating political events of the 20th century, dominated by two world wars, and culminating in the era of the Iron Curtain and the hydrogen bomb.
