Publishers Description: Martin Gilberts life of Winston Churchill runs to eight main volumes with more than 15 supplementary volumes. He began working on the biography 25 years ago, when he was summoned by Randolph Churchill to his home in East Bergholt. He expected this to be a days visit, but he was taken on as Randolphs assistant, and after his death appointed as his successor. In search of the "true" Churchill, Martin Gilbert has travelled all over the world in Churchills footsteps: the Western Front, Gallipoli, Palestine, India and the sites of the World War II Allied summits. In the course of writing the book, he met all the surviving political leaders of Churchills era and has many stories to tell about them. This personal account of Martin Gilberts quest to capture the most famous Prime Minister of Great Britain is also in part a history of our times. The author combines these two in a narrative balanced in argument and anecdote.
