The book is incredibly disappointing. Dramatic and historic events are glossed over in a few paragraphs at most. There is virtually no original research here, and what is here is devoted mostly to quoting the subject in times when the author thought he was uttering so...

This was a deeply diappointing book and one I am sorry I wasted time or money on.

    Churchill

    This book was simply a summary of Churchill's life. Although this book was entertaining, it was not a great work of history.

    Excellent Book

    Recently read this wonderful biography of Winston Churchill and was absolutely riveted by it. Unlike many books on Churchill, this book is short, not comprehensive, but perfectly captures his life story and achievements. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Churchill, WWII, England.

    Very well done

    I bought this book for my lady who is from England. She never put it down and said she learned more about Churchill than she ever did before.

    Good read

    This e book is an easy read on Churchill, and gives insight to both the man and the politician, The world had the right person in Churchhill at the right time to fight the agressors.

    Adulating Churchill

    This is more hagiography than biography, Not only does Johnson revere Churchill, he credits him with winning World War II all by himself.

    I Also Recommend:

    Churchill a Key World Historical Figure

    If you don't know the story of Winston Churchill's life you really can't possibly understand the importance of Winston's contributions to the effort of winning World War II and the shaping of the modern political world. Paul Johnson's book does an excellent job of exploring all the important details in Churchill's life. Johnson steadily builds Winston's character through the many phases and events of his lifetime to show how Churchill became the larger than life leader he was.

    Johnson's writing style is easy to read and holds your interest throughout the book. I highly recommend this book and found it to be one of the most engaging biographies I have read. It leaves you satisfied and with a desire to dive even deeper into the person of Winston Churchill.
