Praise for Churchill
“From Roy Jenkins’s masterly biography, we emerge marveling at the manifold gifts that informed Churchill’s genius for leadership…Jenkins proves equal to the daunting scale of his subject.”—Harold Evans, New York Times Book Review
“One might wonder whether anything fresh remains to be said about Winston Churchill, but Roy Jenkins uniquely combines the skills of a master biographer with the insights of a practical politician and draws a fresh portrait of the great Englishman with authority, elegance, and wit. This is far and away Churchill’s best one-volume biography.”—Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
“This is a splendid addition to Churchillian lore, a chronicle full of revealing personal anecdotes, delightful wartime vignettes, and fascinating new insights into the critical 1939-1945 years.”—Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
“Wryly astute…shrewd.”—The Washington Post
“Jenkins catches Churchill’s studied self-inspection with the sure-shot sharpness of an expert portraitist.”—Simon Schama, The New York Review of Books
“Churchill stands forth with Shakespearean bravura as the necessary hero for the most testing moment of national (and world) crisis. A satisfying summation of an unsurpassed life.”—The San Diego Union-Tribune
“Lord Jenkins of Hillhead is an outstanding biographer…it has the narrative power, sweep and sparkle of the author in his prime.”—The Times
