Product description

Review

...an interesting book, and essential reading, I would think, for any Churchillphiles in Canada. (The Canadian Historical Review)

The Great Dominion: Winston Churchill in Canada 1900-1954, by David Dilks, enlarges our understanding of the great man and, in particular, outlines his unwaveringly positive attitude to this country. (The Canadian Jewish News)

Dilks has gathered an impressive collection of primary documents illustrating the relationship between Canada and Churchill...His goal, as he writes in the introduction, is to let Churchill fulfill 'a role for which he was uniquely qualified: to speak for himself.' He succeeds admirably. (International Journal)

The Great Dominion is a fascinating read, especially rewarding for those interested in Churchill, Canada in the first half of the twentieth century, and the Second World War... (The International History Review)

Dilks recreates each of Churchill's visits to Canada, giving the reader a unique glimpse into Winston's views of world events...David Dilk's contribution to the historical record of the first half of the twentieth century is a vigorous reminder that, at one time, being a politician was regarded as an honourable calling, and that the Great Dominion could be counted on to be a gracious host to many of them. (Canada Post)

This is a grand and handsome book, a superb companion to modern histories of Canada and the UK as seen through Churchill's eyes and those who saw Churchill in Canada. (Finest Hour)

[The Great Dominion] is a thorough, careful chronicle of Churchill and his relationship with Canada...It is rich in research, relaxed in pacing and unique in concept...Woven together with [the author's] elegant commentary and explanatory footnotes, it gives us our first full-dress portrait of Winston Churchill in Canada. (The Globe and Mail)

Anyone interested in Canadian diplomatic history or the history of the North Atlantic Alliance will want to read this lucidly written study. (Winnipeg Free Press)

The Great Dominion, devoted purely to Churchill's nine visits to Canada over half a century, is a genuine surprise. (The Montreal Gazette)

[an] important and most fascinating book. (The Edmonton Journal)
