Born into aristocracy, Churchill cut his teeth as a young army officer in British India, the Sudan, and the Second Boer War. He rose in the ranks to First Lord of the Admiralty and was a staunch opponent of the encroaching German Nazis. Churchill served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, Churchill was also a historian, a writer, and an artist. He is the only British Prime Minister to have won the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.

The result is a uniquely discerning look at one of the most fascinating personalities in history. “The best military historian of our generation.” –Tom Clancy

Explore How Churchill Went From Schoolboy Failure to Wartime Hero As a British politician who was well known for serving twice as prime minister for the United Kingdom and as an infamous war organizer, leader Winston S. Churchill filled his long life with achievements and recognition plotted throughout every modern history book. Most famously, he led Great Britain into victory over Nazi Germany during World War II in his first run as prime minister and played an essential role in negotiating peace once the war reached an unsteady end. Commonly, his name is associated as one of the "Big Three" alongside United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin. In unity, the three men helped lead the world to a resolution from the violence and terror that reigned in World War II. Winston S. Churchill was more than a military and government leader, though. He lived an entire life full of accomplishments that defined him as a singular person, rather than a government and military leader. In 1953, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his "mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values." Although he maintained a somewhat monotone voice over the radio, Churchill excelled in speaking to live crowds as he imparted encouraging words and recounted tales of his life adventures. On top of these accomplishments as a writer and a trailblazer, Churchill is famous for his endless reserves of energy and his need for little sleep, which allowed him to pursue many projects and hobbies outside of his governmental duties. Among many other possible descriptions, Winton Churchill categorizes as a father, a husband, a painter, a war hero, a politician, a soldier, a smoker, a gambler, and a philosopher. Some of the topics covered in this book include: Churchill's Personal Life His Mental Health Childhood and Early Education Military Service Early Political Career and World War I The Wilderness Years and Rearmament World War II Post-World War II and Second Term The United States and the Soviet Union And much more! Any general biography of Winston S. Churchill will provide an overview of his greatest achievements, but Churchill had other goals and desires that are often ignored and forgotten. What were they? Churchill had a family-a childhood and children of his own-and a political career that began at a young age. He spoke with and entertained some of the biggest names in the world, within both the political and social realms. How did he interact with Franklin D. Roosevelt? With Mahatma Gandhi? Beneath the accolades and accomplishments lie one important question: Who was Winston S. Churchill out of the spotlight? What were his struggles and personal goals? Was he an average man in some ways? The following book is an outline of Winston S. Churchill's life that not only gives a brief overview of his best-known feats but also provides a glimpse into who he was as a person. Scroll to the top and select the "Add to Cart" button now

How does he assess the information that is brought to him? How does his personal or political philosophy, or a moral sense, sustain him? How does he draw inspiration from those around him? How does he deal with setbacks and disasters? In this brilliant close-up look at Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War, Gilbert gets to the heart of the trials and struggles that have confronted the world's most powerful leaders, even up to current politicians such as George Bush and Tony Blair. Basing the book on his intimate knowledge of Churchill's private and official papers, Sir Martin Gilbert, Churchill’s official biographer, looks at the public figure and wartime propaganda, to reveal a very human, sensitive, and often tormented man, who nevertheless found the strength to lead his nation forward from the darkest and most dangerous of times.

A powerful, emotional short story from the prime minister and Pulitzer Prize–winning author, detailing a conversation with the ghost of his beloved father. Legendary politician and military strategist Winston S. Churchill was a master not only of the battlefield, but of the page and the podium. Over the course of forty books and countless speeches, broadcasts, news items and more, he addressed a country at war and at peace, thrilling with victory but uneasy with its shifting role in global politics. In 1953, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature for “his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.” During his lifetime, he enthralled readers and brought crowds roaring to their feet; in the years since his death, his skilled writing has inspired generations of eager history buffs. In this rare work of fiction, Churchill imagines a visit from the ghost of his father, Randolph. Churchill reveals to his father all that has happened in the world since his death in 1895, leaving out one crucial detail: his own critical role in determining the unfolding of world events. His yearning for his late father shines through his terse, careful prose, lending emotional weight and nostalgia to this unusual foray into fiction.

Early in 1937, the enterprising owner of an independent press service called Cooperation made Winston Churchill an irresistible offer. He would place Churchill's articles on current world events in major newspapers across Europe - and for significantly more money than Churchill was making through his present agent. So began a profitable business relationship that grew over time into an enduring personal friendship. This book chronicles that relationship through the entire body of correspondence between Winston Churchill and Emery Reves. It preserves a compelling record of how each man used the other's talents to forward a cause that passionately engaged them both - the spread of democratic ideals in a post-totalitarian world.

“It is my earnest hope that pondering upon the past may give guidance in days to come, enable a new generation to repair some of the errors of former years and thus govern, in accordance with the needs and glory of man, the awful unfolding scene of the future.”—Winston Spencer Churchill From the miracle of Dunkirk to the rape of Warsaw, from the dark corridors of the Kremlin to the embattled heroes of Corregidor, here is the whole panorama of The Second World War. And here is the story of the man upon whose shoulders fell the deadly weight of leadership in the darkest days of the conflict. This is the narrative of Winston Churchill’s—and the Allies’—most valiant years. Captured between these covers are all the exciting action and profound drama of mankind’s most awesome struggle. This concise yet comprehensive narrative encompasses the most vivid events of the War, as seen through the eyes of its greatest leader—and through the eyes of those who were led. We listen to the secret conferences between Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill, peer through the rifle sight of an American infantryman, hear the skirl of the pipes at Alamein, learn how the great decisions were made, measure their cost in blood and courage. Here are the tears and the laughter, the heroism, the glory and the senselessness of war, the pageantry, the black ruin, the excitement, the despair. Here is the palpable taste of war. Here, in dramatic, readable form, is the story of how Sir Winston Churchill achieved immortality in his own lifetime.
