Born into aristocracy, Churchill cut his teeth as a young army officer in British India, the Sudan, and the Second Boer War. He rose in the ranks to First Lord of the Admiralty and was a staunch opponent of the encroaching German Nazis. Churchill served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, Churchill was also a historian, a writer, and an artist. He is the only British Prime Minister to have won the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.

How does he assess the information that is brought to him? How does his personal or political philosophy, or a moral sense, sustain him? How does he draw inspiration from those around him? How does he deal with setbacks and disasters? In this brilliant close-up look at Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War, Gilbert gets to the heart of the trials and struggles that have confronted the world's most powerful leaders, even up to current politicians such as George Bush and Tony Blair. Basing the book on his intimate knowledge of Churchill's private and official papers, Sir Martin Gilbert, Churchill’s official biographer, looks at the public figure and wartime propaganda, to reveal a very human, sensitive, and often tormented man, who nevertheless found the strength to lead his nation forward from the darkest and most dangerous of times.

“It is my earnest hope that pondering upon the past may give guidance in days to come, enable a new generation to repair some of the errors of former years and thus govern, in accordance with the needs and glory of man, the awful unfolding scene of the future.”—Winston Spencer Churchill From the miracle of Dunkirk to the rape of Warsaw, from the dark corridors of the Kremlin to the embattled heroes of Corregidor, here is the whole panorama of The Second World War. And here is the story of the man upon whose shoulders fell the deadly weight of leadership in the darkest days of the conflict. This is the narrative of Winston Churchill’s—and the Allies’—most valiant years. Captured between these covers are all the exciting action and profound drama of mankind’s most awesome struggle. This concise yet comprehensive narrative encompasses the most vivid events of the War, as seen through the eyes of its greatest leader—and through the eyes of those who were led. We listen to the secret conferences between Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill, peer through the rifle sight of an American infantryman, hear the skirl of the pipes at Alamein, learn how the great decisions were made, measure their cost in blood and courage. Here are the tears and the laughter, the heroism, the glory and the senselessness of war, the pageantry, the black ruin, the excitement, the despair. Here is the palpable taste of war. Here, in dramatic, readable form, is the story of how Sir Winston Churchill achieved immortality in his own lifetime.

Although Churchill is a 1953 Nobel laureate in literature, his famous speeches have overshadowed his other writing. Winston Churchill's Imagination concentrates on key works in modes other than political rhetoric to show how Churchill engages readers with those words and ideas that are hallmarks of his imagination. Chapters take up his literary relationship with Lawrence of Arabia; Churchill's intense but little-known involvement with cinema in an essay on Charlie Chaplin and as a script writer and consultant in the 1930s for Alexander Korda's film studio; Churchill's evocation of paintings as templates for narrative in his first history and in his only novel; his imaginative engagement with science and science fiction; the depiction of time, duration, and alternative history in his biography of Marlborough; and Churchill's last testament in the realm of imagination, "The Dream." This is a story that he reserved for posthumous publication, in which a seventy-two-year-old Winston discusses the twentieth century with the ghost of his father, Lord Randolph Churchill, who died in 1895. Winston Churchill's Imagination is aimed at scholars of literature and history, and general readers interested in Churchill. Paul K. Alkon is Leo S. Bing Professor of English and American Literature at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.
