In the introduction to this concise biography of Winston Churchill, renowned British historian Paul Johnson writes, "of all the towering figures of the twentieth century, both good and evil, Winston Churchill was the most valuable to humanity, and also the most likable. It is a joy to write his life." Well, it's also a joy to read Johnson's clear, authoritative, and highly entertaining portrait of the great statesman. Beginning with Winston Churchill's somewhat troubled childhood and continuing through his final decade - an "age of dying embers, with occasional flickers of flame and fiery glows" - Johnson explores, with revealing anecdotes and quotations and valuable historical context, the various phases of Churchill's professional and personal life. In the process, he engagingly illuminates the character and eccentricities of one of history's most complex and enigmatic personalities. (AG)
