Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

These illuminating essays by British and American historians provide detailed looks at Churchill in varied roles that include his appointed and elected offices, his war leadership and his tenure as political leader of the opposition. His long and turbulent career is assessed in components, some of them relatively minor (for instance, his appearances on radio and in film) but most of large scope, such as the lessons Churchill learned during WW I that were applicable during WW II. Among other topics explored: Norman Rose theorizes that "few Englishmen have had a better record on behalf of Zionism"; John Keegan compares Churchill's skills as a strategist with those of Abraham Lincoln; Stephen E. Ambrose analyzes Churchill's wartime relationship with Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower; Roy Jenkins writes on Churchill's second government (1951-1955), which, he remarks, "was too much dominated by its chief's stubborn battle for survival to be a splendid affair." These 29 pieces bring Churchill into clearer focus.

From Library Journal

This excellent collection stems from a 1991 conference at the University of Texas, where 27 distinguished participants offered these distillations of their expertise on topics ranging over Churchill's entire career. Historians Blake and Louis have edited these subsequently rewritten papers and commissioned two more for this stimulating and often insightful volume. There are no bombshells, but Churchill comes into sharp focus as a fallible giant. This work will be valuable to historians and fascinating to any interested reader. Try Warren Kimball on the FDR partnership, Philip Ziegler on monarchy, Donald C. Watt on appeasement, or S. Gopal's well-honed but scrupulously just commentary on India. Essential for academic libraries and highly recommended for any British history collection.
