"e;It is my earnest hope that pondering upon the past may give guidance in days to come, enable a new generation to repair some of the errors of former years and thus govern, in accordance with the needs and glory of man, the awful unfolding scene of the future."e;-Winston Spencer ChurchillFrom the miracle of Dunkirk to the rape of Warsaw, from the dark corridors of the Kremlin to the embattled heroes of Corregidor, here is the whole panorama of The Second World War. And here is the story of the man upon whose shoulders fell the deadly weight of leadership in the darkest days of the conflict.

Here is the palpable taste of war. Here, in dramatic, readable form, is the story of how Sir Winston Churchill achieved immortality in his own lifetime.
