NO ONE DID MORE TO PRESERVE THE VALUES WE HOLD DEAR . . . HOW DID ONE MAN DO SO MUCH, FOR SO LONG, AND SO EFFECTIVELY? Soldier, parliamentarian, prime minister, orator. Painter, writer, husband, and leader-all of these facets combined to make Winston Churchill one of the most complex and fascinating personalities in history. In Churchill, eminent historian Paul Johnson offers an elegantly written and profoundly revealing portrait-a lively, concise exploration of one of history's most intriguing great men. Johnson illuminates the various phases of Churchill's career-from his adventures as a young cavalry officer in the service of the empire to his role as an elder statesman prophesying the advent of the cold war-and shows how Churchill's immense adaptability and innate pugnacity made him a formidable leader for the better part of a century. 'Johnson clearly shares and reveals in Churchill's generosity of spirit and limitless intellectual energy. He has produced a book that is a joy-and a worthy tribute to both of them.' - THE WASHINGTON TIMES 'With deft narrative skill and keen insight, Johnson masterfully sketches the phases of Churchill's life . . . illustrates the man's humor, resilience, courage, and eccentricity as no other biography before.' - NATIONAL REVIEW
