Overview

As a defender of democracy against totalitarianism, Winston Churchill was the greatest statesman of the twentieth century for many people throughout the English-speaking world. But how does he appear in a new century with a different agenda where few can remember him? Featuring the essays of an authoritative group of historians who explore his complexities and ambiguities, this book includes as well the reminiscences and recollections of four people who still vividly remember Churchill (Tony Benn, Lord Carrington, Lord Deedes and Lady Soames).
