Description
Winston Churchill rages against time and his own mortality in this tumultuous political drama of his last ten years of public life, following World War II. "I am an obstinate pig." This was how Winston Churchill described himself. Two months after Hitler's defeat, Churchill was hurled from power by the British electorate; this book chronicles how, when it seemed impossible, he fought his way back over the next six years to become prime minister once more, convinced that he was the only one able to secure the enduring peace that had eluded the world after the war. Barbara Leaming gives us Churchill at his most outrageous, maddening, and devious—but also at his most human, courageous, and defiant.

"The plot, which covers the last 10 years of [Churchill's] political life, could hardly be more gripping.... Barbara Leaming has fashioned a poignant narrative. Like any good storyteller, she focuses sharply on the protagonist and his aspirations."—Sunday Times (London)
