4.51  ·  Rating details ·  61 ratings  ·  6 reviews
Churchill (1874-1965) was one of the 20th century's most charismatic and controversial figures. He escaped from capture as a prisoner of war in the Boer War, was a Nobel Prize-winning author and twice prime minister. He is best remembered as the astute and powerful orator who inspired a battered Britain to victory and led the post-war, shattered nation to recovery.

A delicious and nutritious smorgasbord spread across a vast table. Churchill not only made history, he wrote about it with color, force, and wit. I've been savoring this book for years and look forward to many more trips to the table.
Martyn Lovell
This work is a 600 page collection of Churchill quotes, each carefully sourced, indexed and contextualised. Churchill was a perceptive, witty and incisive person - so the individual quotes make good reading.

The author also does a good job of listing falsely attributed quotes and finding the actual source, and of categorizing the quotes usefully so that it is easy to find something on point.

If you are a serious Churchill enthusiast, it might be possible to read this from start to finish and enjoy

Definitive collection.

Loved reading the history behind many of the quotations! Most I'd never heard; others have become part of our daily language.

One of the best comprehensive work on Churchill for the so-called Churchill aficionados.
