Churchill was probably the greatest British statesman of the 20th century. He was also an astute student of history and was able to make some fascinating predictions based on the past. The author has done a superb job in revealing some of Churchill's prophacies in light of the time he made them. A few never panned out, but such events as the dictator who would lead Germany into a terrible war - and all of Europe with him, the invention of the atom bomb, even the need of a United States of Europe he predicted with astonishing accuracy! This book is one which granbs your attention and keeps it until the very last page. Very highly recommended!!
Humes has discovered yet another facet of Churchill’s brilliance. His unique talent for understanding the past to predict the future is much needed and sorely missing in today’s leaders. Humes has created a must read playbook for anyone considering a life in public service
