A Must for any Churchill Buff
on May 9, 2012
I have read nearly all of the biographies of Churchill (and numerous other books about him) and this is the most downright fun to read. The author is a truly fine writer as well as an expert on Churchill. What makes this book so much fun to read either in snippets "draughts" is the structure: short "chapters" covering everything from his political fortunes to the apartments and homes he lived in at various times in his life to the cars he drove to the cigars, food and drink he preferred (the reports of his drinking, other than champagne, have been greatly exaggerated) to the clothing he wore to his daily habits.
If you're a Churchill fan, you'll see photographs you've never seen before and learn a few things about the man that you likely didn't know. If you know someone who doesn't know very much about Churchill, this is the book to get them to read. A must.
