Acclaimed historian Andrew Roberts brings his customary perception and brio to this fresh biography of Churchill. Drawing on forty new sources including the private diaries of George VI, this is a clear-eyed and intimate portrait of a titan of a man, showing both the virtues and the faults. Harry Hopkins, President Roosevelt’s emissary, wrote ‘Wherever he was, there was a battlefront’ and Andrew Roberts brilliantly captures his many battles, public and private.
Joining Andrew in conversation is literary editor of the Spectator, Sam Leith, whose most recent book, Write to the Point: How to be Clear, Correct and Persuasive on the Page, is just out in paperback.
