Andrew Roberts
Churchill: Walking with Destiny

A towering figure of 20th-century history, Winston Churchill was polled as ‘Greatest Briton’ in 2002. In his brilliant biography of the wartime prime minister and world-famous cigar smoker, historian Andrew Roberts draws on over 40 new sources, including the diaries of George VI, creating an intimate portrait of a complex man whose capacity for hard work was equalled by his capacity for drink, whose humour and gift for friendship were legendary, and whose principled convictions abide.
