Roy Jenkins' Churchill is an exhaustive biographical picture of one of the most enigmatic and important figures of the Twentieth Century.From the admiralty to the miner's strike, from the Battle of Britain to the Nobel Prize, Churchill's oversaw some of the most important events the World has ever seen. Roy Jenkins faithfully presents these events, while also managing to convey the contradictions and quirks in Churchill's character.

In depth analysis and brilliant historical research make this a magnificent one-volume biography of an extraordinary life. In some ways a companion piece to his excellent biography of Gladstone, Churchill is packed with insights that only a fellow politician could convey.
