Description
A retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and the distinguished military historian who gave us Decision at Normandy and biographies of George S. Patton and Dwight D. Eisenhower, Carlo D'Este here takes a fresh approach to the life of Winston Churchill through the prism of his military service as both a solider and leader. In 1895, at the age of 21, he was commissioned into the Fourth Queen's Own Hussars and later saw action on the Northwest Frontier of India and in the last cavalry charge of the British Army at the Battle of Omdurman—experiences that furnished him with a crucial understanding of soldiers and a love of soldiering. As Prime Minister in 1940, he kept for himself the office of Minister of Defense, claiming the ultimate responsibility for Britain's war effort.

"Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Churchill was the man—the only one—for the hour in 1940, and D'Este's magnificent book tells us exactly why."—Sunday Telegraph (London)
