Born to a privileged family, Winston Churchill was first a Conservative then a Liberal politician, a painter, a writer, Britain's greatest military leader, a prime minister, a Nobel prize winner and a proud father. But who was the real Winston Churchill? Michael Paterson has taken Churchill's prolific commentaries on himself and juxtaposed them with the opinions of those who knew him. From his dramatic escape as a prisoner of war in South Africa, his political career, his dark days following the Dardanelles failure and his resurgence as Britain's great wartime prime minister this is a truly rounded portrait of Winston Churchill. Winston Churchill is a unique biography and a fascinating insight into one of the best-known public figures of recent history. Drawing on contemporary first hand accounts, many previously unpublished, we can see Churchill through the eyes of those who knew him, those that met him and those that opposed him - including Hitler and Goering.
