The rave reviews are deserved. This is how a biography should be written. Detailed but gripping; appreciative of the subject but clear about failings as well as genius. What a read: impossible to put down!
Churchill, Walking with Destiny Described by the critics as the best single-volume about Churchill ever written this wonderful book is not to be missed.Andrew Roberts writes with clarity and charm about the great man; his amazing resilience, courage and wit, as well as his almost superhuman capacity for work, and of course his incomparable powers of oratory. More than that, there are details and quotes and stories that most of us didn’t know before. The book is tremendously enjoyable and a huge achievement.
Very readable Biography of Churchill I have given this Biography 5 stars as it is so readable. I was disappointed when I saw that Andrew Roberts has chosen this subject as there are so many other more detailed books about Churchill. When one has read a number of them together with all those Diaries etc it is rather disappointing to find another one feels bound to read, as I always read Robert’s books. There is nothing new here and all the famous speeches are retold, together with a skim through Churchill’s life. Overall I consider that he has erred on the side of generosity to Churchill. I would recommend this book to a beginner in Churchill affairs, however I do not consider this to be one of Robert’s best. I hope it has awakened his interest in the 1st Duke of Marlborough.
