    The Real Winston Churchill

    This DVD is riveting. The actor playing Churchill is eerily true to life. I am a big Churchill afficianado, and have studied him extensively. This will fascinate both Churchill expert & novice alike. The period of the run up to World War II is told very well, both in the UK and the USA.
