Churchill and the Leaders

Who Shaped Him Winston Churchill yearned to be ‘great’, to gain historical immortality. He did so, through deeds and words: his actions as a soldier and politician, his writing as a journalist and historian.

Churchill’s path to greatness was also defined by the leaders he encountered along the way, both friend and foe: Hitler and Mussolini, Roosevelt and Stalin, David Lloyd George, Neville Chamberlain, Charles de Gaulle. The haunting presence of an adored father, who had seen nothing of merit in his troublesome son. In these men Churchill discerned greatness, or its absence, in ways that influenced his own career.

Join award-winning author, David Reynolds, as he offers a vivid new perspective on Churchill’s life and work, showing how this unique man learned from his ‘great contemporaries’ – and what they saw in him.
