A new and dynamic reappraisal of Winston Churchill, and his finest
hour in 1940-1. Who was Winston Churchill? Even fifity years after
his death he is one of the most iconic figures in British history:
as a young man he was a maverick journalist, his many positions in
politics before 1940 marked him out as a courageous but foolhardy
man. Yet it is Churchill's record in war, which has recently been
questioned, that confirms his genius as a military commander and
national leader -- someone who understood the dangers of Nazi
Germany before 1939; someone uniquely capable to lead the empire
through the turmoil of the Second World War. Catherwood argues that
it was Churchill's stand in 1940-41 that saved Britain and only he
was able to bring together the allies that eventually defeated
Hitler in 1945. Catherwood has produced a challenging yet
accessible reassessment of the life and career of Winston
Churchill, lion of British history and flawed hero.
