Winston Churchill was the greatest wartime prime minister in Britain’s history. To his defenders he was not only the man who saved the West from the tyranny of Nazi Germany, but an exceptional human being, abounding in physical and moral courage, a genius who stood head and shoulders above his rivals. To his detractors, he was more of a liability than an asset in World War Two, sacri cing the interests of Britain to those of the Soviet Union and the United States. In this short, incisive guide, Paul Addison, the author of the Dictionary of National Biography entry on Churchill, analyses his extraordinary career and looks at the radically different ways in which historians have seen him.
