The definitive biography of Winston Churchill.

This edition of the highly acclaimed one-volume CHURCHILL: A LIFE, is the story of adventure. It follows Winston Churchill from his earliest days to his moments of triumph. Here, the drama and excitement of his story are ever-present, as are his tremendous qualities in peace and war, not least as an orator and as a man of vision. Martin Gilbert gives us a vivid portrait, using Churchill's most personal letters and the recollections of his contemporaries, both friends and enemies, to go behind the scenes of some of the stormiest and most fascinating political events of our time, dominated by two world wars, and culminating in the era of the Iron Curtain and the hydrogen bomb.

Reviews

A stupendous book. He has told the truth.

One of the greatest histories of our time.

Margaret Thatcher

By far the most lucid, comprehensive and authoritative account of Churchill that has been offered in a single volume.

Philip Ziegler, Daily Telegraph
