'Churchill waged the Second World War twice over: as Prime Minister steering his country from disaster in 1940 to victory in 1945, and again as the conflict's principal historian.' Reynolds's study sheds new light on Churchill in his multiple, often overlapping roles as warrior, statesman, politician and historian. It forces us to reconsider much received wisdom about the Second World War, but also examines Churchill's 'second wilderness' years, 1945 to 1951, during which he wrote himself into history. American-cut pages.
