In 1928, Winston Churchill seemed to be at the very height of his career. He was Chancellor of the Exchequer and when he spoke in the House of Commons, MPs of every party flocked to hear his oratory. The leadership of the all-powerful Conservative party seemed within his grasp. A year later, however, all had changed. The Conservatives themselves were defeated, and out of office, Churchill found himself at odds with the leadership, especially over the future of India. When the National Government was formed in 1931, Churchill was not asked to join it. Thereafter, though out on his own, Churchill's acute political sense, foresight and courage were undiminished. Fed with secret inside information by a small, brave band of men - some of them risking their careers to help him - Churchill consistently warned of the Nazi danger, even before the rise of Hitler. And once Hitler came to power, he stepped up his attacks on Britain's failure to rearm. His message was belittled by the Government, which fought him at every turn, even refusing him the right to broadcast. But Churchill never gave up. Despite all the Government's efforts, and as a result of Churchill's courage and perseverance, the… (més)

Foi um dos mais admirados homens políticos do século XX. Mas não era um político de convergências, era antes um radical. Controverso e sem papas na língua, suscitava tanto a admiração como o ódio. Os de esquerda criticavam-lhe a sua tomada de posição contra a revolução soviética, ou a oposição à independência da Índia, enquanto os de direita criticavam o seu antinazismo desde a primeira hora, ou, mais tarde, o apoio a Estaline e a Tito. Mas o seu papel na segunda Grande Guerra foi fundamental, como afirmou De Gaulle: "Winston Churchill impôs-se do princípio ao fim do drama, como o grande campeão de um grande empreendimento e o grande artista de uma grande História." Mas o seu papel político doméstico também foi fundamental. O seu nome está associado a grandes reformas: Serviço Nacional de Saúde, seguros de desemprego, reforma das prisões, pensão para viúvas e órfãos, participação dos empregados nos lucros das empresas, etc. Martin Gilbert, autor desta biografia (a mais aclamada de Churchill), define-o, por isso, assim: "Um verdadeiro crente na necessidade de o Estado tomar parte ativa, tanto por meio da legislação como financeiramente, na garantia de padrões mínimos de vida, trabalho e bem estar social para todos os cidadãos.".

This is a book assembled from the materials for a TV show of the same name. It's OK but not great reading. The photos are helpful in setting personalities in my mind. ( )
