Summary

An elegant, concise, and revealing portrait of the inimitable leader.

Paul Johnson's books are acknowledged as masterpieces of historical analysis. In Churchill, he offers a lively, succinct exploration of one of the most complex and fascinating personalities in history. Winston Churchill's hold on contemporary readers has never slackened, and this exploration of his life casts new light on one of history's most intriguing figures. Johnson illuminates the various phases of Churchill's career-from his adventures as a young cavalry officer in the service of the empire to his role as an elder statesman prophesying the advent of the Cold War-and shows how Churchill's immense adaptability and innate pugnacity made him a formidable leader for the better part of a century.

"You read Johnson to be provoked and entertained, and on both these scores his biography, like its subject, succeeds wonderfully." -The American COnservative

"With deft narrative skill and keen insight, Johnson masterfully sketches the phases of Churchill's life...Along the way, Johnson gives us wonderful insights into Churchill's character...Rich with anecdote and quotation, Paul Johnson's Churchill illustrates the man's humor, resilience, courage, and eccentricity as no other biography before." -National Review

Johnson's story arc is written in fluid prose that beautifully reveals the tension of achievement of Churchill's life." -Dallas Morning News
