Winston Churchill is one of the dominating figures of the 20th century. In this stimulating and original book, David Dilks presents Churchill, not only as a war leader and international statesman, but also as a private person with a rich variety of friendships and rivalries. New and penetrating light is directed on Churchill during World War II. This was a period of dramatic relationships: conflicts with General de Gaulle in contrast with respect and affection for Roosevelt (feelings not entirely reciprocated by the American president). In the post-war era, relations with Stalin, and precoccupation with the Soviet Union and the Cold War all dominated Churchill's subsequent career, a time when he was able to renew his working relationship with his wartime colleague General - now President - Eisenhower. Whether in or out of office, Churchill's influence was felt in all areas of British politics. David Dilks brings Churchill vividly to life for all those interested in modern British, military and international history.
