Churchill: Walking with Destiny
Winston Churchill towers over every other figure in twentieth-century British history. Andrew Roberts draws on over forty new sources, including the private diaries of King George VI, to depict Churchill far more intimately as an individual - warts and all. He reveals his virtues and character, his titanic capacity for work (and drink), his ability to see the big picture and his willingness to take risks, together with his friendships and family life.
Andrew Roberts is a biographer and historian of international renown whose books include Salisbury: Victorian Titan; Masters and Commanders; and The Storm of War. His most recent book was Napoleon the Great. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and the Royal Historical Society, and a Trustee of the International Churchill Society. He is currently Visiting Professor at the Dept of War Studies at King’s College, London
