Instead of locating Winston Churchill's position on a simple left/right spectrum, Richard Toye shows how Churchill evolved as a statesman and challenges the reader to understand his need to reconcile the demands of conscience with those of political conformity. Drawing on newly released documents and a talent for separating the facts from the overblown reputation, Toye provides the first comprehensive analysis of Churchill's relationship with the Empire.
