about this item

A richly visual examination of the most revered Briton in history, from his birth at Blenheim Palace, to his inspirational wartime leadership, to his final years as a grand old man of world politics.
 
Winston Churchill, whose nine decades spanned the early era of cavalry charges to the nuclear age, has been voted the greatest Briton. With his keen historical perspective and analytical mind, he was quick to oppose ****** and thus played a seminal part in ensuring the survival of Britain—and arguably Western democracy itself. Churchill had his disasters and blind spots (the Gallipoli campaign, the creation of Iraq, India), but his achievements assure his place in posterity. This illustrated portrait, complete with 160 painstakingly researched photographs, artworks, speeches, and letters sourced from the family archives at Cambridge, provides insight into every facet of this remarkable man: the outspoken public figure, the powerful orator, the loving husband and father, the enthusiastic painter, and even the sportsman.
