By Severance / Houghton-mifflin

Winston Churchill both experienced and influenced the great social and political changes of the first half of the twentieth century. Chruchill was elected to Parliament in 1900; by the time he resigned as Prime Minister of Great Britain, in 1955, he had served under six monarchs and through two world wars. He had changed political parties twice, worked for social reforms, been voted in and out of office, and advocated strong government action to solve problems, even when it was unpopular.

This fascinating chronicle of Churchill's life includes many of his own words - demonstrating the resonance and power with which he used the English language. Churchill's speeches and writings embody the foresight, imagination, and charismatic strength that sustained his countrymen as they fought for their nation's survival. His statesmanship, crucial to England and her allies during both war and peacetime, has had a lasting impact on today's world.

Carefully researched, deftly written, and lavishly illustrated with photographs, Winston Churchill: Soldier Statesman, Artist is a vivid portrait of a unique twentieth-century leader and the dramatic times in which he lived.
