This book is a tour-de-force, just like the subject Winston Churchill. Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, celebrates the singular brilliance of one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century.
Fearless on the battlefield, Churchill had to be ordered by the king to stay out of action on D-Day; he pioneered aerial bombing and few could match his experience in organizing violence on a colossal scale His maneuvering positioned America for entry into World War II. He was a trailblazer in health care, education, and social welfare, though he remained incorrigibly politically incorrect. He is proof that one person—intrepid, ingenious, determined—can make all the difference. A MUST read!!!
