Churchill Paul Johnson epub

From the “most celebrated and best-loved British historian in America” (Wall Street Journal), an elegant, concise, and revealing portrait of Winston Churchill

In Churchill, eminent historian Paul Johnson offers a lively, succinct exploration of one of the most complex and fascinating personalities in history. Winston Churchill's hold on contemporary readers has never slackened, and Johnson’s analysis casts new light on his extraordinary life and times. Johnson illuminates the various phases of Churchill's career—from his adventures as a young cavalry officer in the service of the empire to his role as an elder statesman prophesying the advent of the Cold War—and shows how Churchill's immense adaptability and innate pugnacity made him a formidable leader for the better part of a century. Johnson's narration of Churchill's many triumphs and setbacks, rich with anecdote and quotation, illustrates the man's humor, resilience, courage, and eccentricity as no other biography before, and is sure to appeal to historians and general nonfiction readers alike.

    Paul Johnson has created for us a concise 200-page masterpiece. This work can be used as a recreational page-turning adventure, or as a portable reference guide to living the heartiest and fullest of lives. I laughed and cried through all of Churchill's ups and downs. While showing his skills as a great historian, Johnson does not shirk his duties as a fellow runner in the race of life, and makes sure the reader is left with an unforgettable impression of one of the greatest leaders that ever walked before us.
