Churchill: Walking with Destiny

Viking

Winston Churchill may be tied with Napoleon as the most written-about person in Western civilization. Since historian Andrew Roberts already has several books about Bonaparte under his belt, it’s only appropriate he move on to Churchill.

 

Walking with Destiny is a massive work, drawing from some hitherto unavailable sources. It clears up a few mysteries, debunks some myths, and offers explanations for some of Churchill’s more inexplicable actions. In his time, Churchill’s political shifts were condemned as opportunistic. His willingness to honor principle over party makes him mighty appealing these days. And he did call Hitler a “bloodthirsty little guttersnipe.”
