Born to a privileged family, Winston Churchill was first a Conservative then a Liberal politician, a painter, a writer, Britain's greatest military leader, a prime minister, a Nobel Prize winner, and a proud father. But who was the real Winston Churchill? In this important book, Michael Paterson juxtaposes Churchill's prolific commentaries on himself with the opinions of those who knew him.
