Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Soldier. Statesman. Nobel Prize--winning author. Master politician. Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill left his mark on the modern world. Trained as an officer at Sandhurst--Britain's equivalent to West Point--he went on to fight for his beloved country around the world, garnering fame for his war correspondence and his daring escape from prison as a prisoner of war. He rose quickly in England's halls of power, becoming First Lord of the Admiralty where he virtually rebuilt the once mighty Royal Navy in preparation for World War I. Of course, the rest is history: his prophetic warnings about Hitler, his inspiring leadership as Prime Minister during England's darkest hours of World War II, his indispensable role in brokering the peace between the United States and the Soviet Union, and his final years as an eminent historian and author. Never has the dramatic story of Winston Churchill's extraordinary life been told as in Churchill: An Illustrated History. Unlike other histories and biographies, this amazing book takes the unique approach of combining authoritative text with over 190 rare color- and black-and-white photos of Churchill and the many famous people he encountered. It follows his life from his beginning as an ambitious young officer to his career as a world leader, and finally to his years as the beloved and revered older statesman before his death in 1965. Exhaustively researched, filled with many little-known facts, and wonderfully written, Churchill: An Illustrated History combines the insights of a great history novel with the visual power of a film documentary to create the most unique portrait of Winston Churchill ever published.
