Winston Churchill
  • Description
  • Related

In this new mini-biography of the Greatest Briton, author Rodney Legg adopts a unique year-by-year approach to the life ofWinston Churchill, from his nursery to the grave, with quotes and photographs from all stages of his long career.

A war correspondent in Cuba, then a cavalryman in South Africa, he became the consummate leader, holding most of the high offices of the British state from First Lord of the Admiralty to Prime Minister – twice over in both those cases.

The voice of Britain alone in 1940, whose commanding rhetoric inspired national resistance, his skill as a wordsmith has never been equalled in the public domain.

As a warrior, politician, writer and artist, he brought an infectious enthusiasm and skill to all that he did. Never to be under-estimated, he remained at the heart of national and world events from his twenties through to reluctant retirement from Downing Street at the age of 80.

This pocket-sized, hardback biography provides the ideal introduction in words and pictures to Churchill, his life and the places where his remarkable spirit can be felt even today.

Rodney Legg is a prolific author and historian who has specialised in the Second World War. Nationally he is active in the environmental movement having been chairman of the Open Spaces Society since 1989 and a member of the ruling council of the NationalTrust from 1990 until 2009.
