Churchill (Life & Times) (Life and Times)
Sebastian HaffnerISBN: 1904341071;
Book DescriptionWinston Churchill (1874-1965), British Prime Minister and leader of the wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, is a towering figure. When he died in 1965, Sebastian Haffner wrote, "one might have thought that it was not a man who was being borne to his grave, but British history itself -- a resplendent, fortunate history whose last illustrious chapter Churchill himself had written almost a quarter of a century before." Haffner -- an "enemy alien" whose own writing influenced Churchill?s policy towards Germany and the Nazis, places Churchill the warrior, the poet, and the adventurer alongside Churchill the statesman.
