Churchill Summary


Churchill by Roy Jenkins

From the admiralty to the miner's strike, from the Battle of Britain to the Nobel Prize, Churchill oversaw some of the most important events the World has ever seen. Roy Jenkins faithfully presents these events, while also managing to convey the contradictions and quirks in Churchill's character.

In depth analysis and brilliant historical research make this a magnificent one-volume biography of an extraordinary life. In some ways a companion piece to his excellent biography of Gladstone, Churchill is packed with insights that only a fellow politician could convey.

"There is no doubt that he has surpassed himself. This is the biography of the year." Robert McCrum, Observer

"This is a first class, well-sustained work of history and a masterpiece of biography " Andrew Roberts, Sunday Telegraph

"Lord Jenkins of Hillhead is an outstanding biographer...it has the narrative power, sweep and sparkle of the author in his prime. " John Grigg, Times
