In The Footsteps Of Churchill (book)


Forty years after Churchill's death, historian Richard Holmes brings his knowledge of the military and eye for illuminating detail to this insightful new biography of one of Britain's greatest leaders. Much has been written about Churchill's management of Britain as prime minister through the crisis years of World War II, but this book also explores the explosive colour of his early life, using new material to investigate the influences that shaped the man and examining the complexity of Churchill's personality.
