Winston Churchill was one of the most remarkable statesmen in history, not least because he had an uncanny ability to predict future events. James Humes explores this extraordinary aspect of Churchill's character, from his schoolboy prediction of an epic military clash in Europe in 1914 to his thoughts on the Cold War in the 1950s; and he shows how intense study of history allowed Churchill to understand the course of events and predict the future - and rarely get it wrong.
