Churchill was a soldier, journalist, author, public speaker, Member of Parliament and Cabinet minister in a variety of posts, including two stints as prime minister. His fame comes primarily from his role as wartime leader of Great Britain during World War II, but the roots of his courage, statesmanship, and breadth of vision come can be found in a long life of service to his country and to the ideals of western liberty and democracy. Historian Robin H. Neillands traces the remarkable journey of a man who raised the alarm and rallied the Allies to victory over evil.
