it was amazing

An exceptionally thorough and well-written account of a exceptional person and almost mythical personality. Drawing on diaries and personal accounts, Andrew Roberts introduces the reader to a flawed man who was great not in spite of his shortcomings but for the most part because of them.

Historian, statesman, soldier and butterfly collector, Churchill was many things. Roberts has written a biography which puts into perspective the many sides of the complex being that was Winston Spencer Churchill.

This is not beach reading though and you'll want to set aside a good chunk of time to get through the almost 1000 pages. It is, however, worth the effort.

Splendid reading.
