  • 作者簡介
  • The life and times of the great statesman as he saw it.

    "This beautifully produced volume brings Churchill vividly to life... The book richly reveals both the private and public sides of the war leader and rhetorician. Churchill emerges as a fully human figure and treads the historical stage with a new energy. Highly recommended."
    -- Choice

    Winston Churchill was and still is a large presence. No fewer than five recent film productions in as many years -- Churchill; The Darkest Hour; The Crown; Churchill's Secret and Dunkirk -- have attempted to present the controversial leader accurately. But for good or worse, we can only turn to the man himself and his contemporaries for the true story.

    Churchill, The Life uses his words, personal documents and photographs as well as private and public memorabilia to commemorate the private, military and political man who many consider "the greatest Briton of all time" and the best friend the United States ever had. Many of the items are published here for the first time.

    Eight sections narrate Churchill's monumental life and achievements:

    • Youth 1874-1903 - Unhappy son of a British duke and American mother; student; father's death
    • Early Military Career 1898-1916 - Soldier; war reporter; escaped prisoner; author; husband and father
    • Early Political Career 1899-1922 - Decorated soldier; parliamentarian; government minister
    • The First World War - Political defeat and blunders; American lecture tour; government minister
    • Rising Through the Ranks - Political legacy of the Great War; government minister; painter; farmer
    • The Second World War - Prime Minister; V-E Day
    • Post-War Years - Political defeat; "Iron Curtain" Speech; daughter's suicide; death of second daughter
    • Legacy - Statesman; historian; Honorary Citizen of the United States; Nobel Prize Laureate, final days.

    Compelling, exhaustively researched, filled with informative captions and quotes, rarely seen and never before seen period photographs and ephemera -- this is a book worthy of its subject that will entice fans of military and world events and historical figures. An essential purchase for all collections.
