“Winston Churchill led the life that many men would love to live. He survived 50 gunfights and drank 20,000 bottles of champagne...And of course, by resisting Hitler, he saved Europe and perhaps the world.” – Mark Riebling in “Churchill's Finest Hour".

Was he “the greatest human being ever to occupy 10 Downing Street” ? Or a man whose “brilliant but unsound judgement resulted in detrimental consequences for Britain and for the world.” ? Nearly 50 years after his death, debate still rages over Sir Winston Churchill’s contribution to history. Indeed, now that wartime nostalgia has mostly washed away, in Britain in particular the views on Churchill are more divergent than ever.

On one point though, the biographers and historians remain unanimous: Churchill led an astonishing life as a soldier, world statesman, historian and Noble Prize Laureate. When he died at 90 in 1965, one of the most important figures in modern history had left the stage. From providing some of the 20th century’s greatest soundbytes to successfully navigating Great Britain to victory in World War II against great odds, Churchill was at the forefront of global events for decades, becoming one of the most influential Britons in history. In 2002, he was named the Greatest Briton of All Time, and 40 years earlier he was the first person to be made an Honorary Citizen of the United States.

Churchill will forever be most associated with World War II, but his life was far more adventurous and complex than that, and these other aspects of the man are often overlooked and overshadowed. British Legends: The Life and Legacy of Winston Churchill details Churchill’s life and career, while humanizing the young child who was both aristocrat and hellion, and the young man who had to overcome a speech impediment to become one of the 20th century’s most dazzling orators. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events in his life, you will learn about Sir Winston Churchill like you never have before, in no time at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life and Legacy of Winston Churchill July 14 2014
By Merissa (Archaeolibrarian) - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
At 67 pages, this book gives you a potted history of Winston Churchill - his start in life, his schooling and his military career. It is enough to give you a brief idea of what he was like without knowing the ins and outs of everything. I would use this book to read a 'synopsis' of the person I was interested in to see whether I wanted to find out more or leave it as is. As it was, I was thoroughly engrossed in his story and the reasons and why-fores behind some of his most popular/unpopular decisions.

This was a great read in my opinion. It was concise and gave me the highlights of his career with out bogging down in the minutiae.
