Description
Opening at the dawn of the British Empire with the great 1759 sea battle at Quiberon Bay—where French invasion ships were chased and defeated by Sir Edward Hawke, effectively settling the outcome of the Seven Years War—this historical portrait by leading British political columnist Edward Pearce follows the career of William Pitt, first Earl of Chatham and later Prime Minister. It is, in many ways, the story of Britain's rise to become the world's dominant imperial power. Posterity has invested Pitt with a heroic mystique—the "Great Commoner," a brilliant statesman and military strategist—but Pearce finds that this most powerful of prime ministers was, at heart, very much a showman.
