it was ok
bookshelves: audio-cd, biography, british, non-fiction

If I could, I would choose 2.5 stars.

What I liked: the exploration of Churchill's character and writings, including famous quotations and excerpts from his most famous speeches. Interestingly, there were many mentions of Beaverbrook, a good friend of Churchill's, an ex-pat Canadian and someone I've been reading up on lately.

What I didn't like: the rather uncritical look at Churchill's early political career and the tone of rah rah empire throughout the narrative.
