Geoffrey Best has realized an impressive tour de force in concisely narrating the life of Winston Churchill in less than 350 pages. Best excels at making a cogent analysis of Churchill¿s strengths and weaknesses. Churchill knew early on that he was called to great things and made his best to make it happen. Churchill¿s road to destiny was not straightforward in part because of his own personality. ¿Churchill: A Study in Greatness¿ is an invitation to know more about an exceptional man who stands out in world history while most of his critics and detractors have sunk into total oblivion.Was this review helpful?
