Covering the years 1917 to 1922, Martin Gilbert's fascinating account carefully traces Churchill's wide-ranging activities and shows how, by his persuasive oratory, administrative skill, and masterful contributions to Cabinet discussions, Churchill regained, only a few years after the disaster of the Dardanelles, a leading position in British political life. There are many dramatic and controversial episodes, the German breakthrough on the Western Front in March 1918, the anti-Bolshevik intervention in 1919, negotiating the Irish Treaty, consolidating the Jewish National Home in Palestine, and the Chanak crisis with Turkey. In all these, and many other events, Churchill's leading role is explained and illuminated in Martin Gilbert's precise, masterful style. The Churchill who emerges from these pages is a complex, gifted, energetic, troubled man who made a forceful impact on his contemporaries, a man whose remarkable skills were admired by his colleagues, but who often angered-even maddened-them by what he said and did. In a moving final chapter, covering a period when Churchill was without a seat in Parliament for the first time since 1900, Martin Gilbert brilliantly draws together the many strands of a time in Churchill's life when his political triumphs were overshadowed by personal sorrows, by his increasingly somber reflections on the backward march of nations and society, and by his stark forecasts of dangers to come.… (més)

There are many dramatic and controversial episodes: the German breakthrough on the Western Front in March 1918, the anti-Bolshevik Intervention in 1919, negotiating the Irish Treaty, consolidating the Jewish National Home in Palestine, and the Chanak crisis with Turkey. In all these, and many other events, Churchill’s leading role is explained and illuminated in Martin Gilbert’s precise, masterful style. The Churchill who emerges from these pages is a complex, gifted, energetic, troubled man who made a forceful impact on his contemporaries; a man whose remarkable skills were admired by his colleagues, but who often angered – even maddened – them by what he said and did.

Nel libro vengono riportati alcuni degli episodi più importanti della vita di Churchill da cui emerge il ritratto di un uomo complesso, energico, problematico che ha avuto un impatto fondamentale sui suoi contemporanei. Un uomo i cui trionfi politici venivano adombrati dalla sue dure previsioni sui pericoli del futuro. ( )

After Gallipoli our hero falls into a bit of a decline. He goes to the trenches in France, mugs a bit for the cameras, and plots a return to Westminster. Lloyd George's Coalition government signals a return to the cabinet, but as minister of munitions. Victory still sees him at that post, but he goes from there to secretary of State for Air, the War ministry, and Colonial Secretary. He's on his way back up.

This volume deals with WSC's time as minister of Munitions. Covering his opposition to the 1917 summer offensive in the west, it also outlines his plan for a massive tank army in 1918. ( )

this is the correspondence relating to the War office and Colonial Secretary period. There's good stuff here relating to WSC on the Middle East. ( )
