    Winston Churchill is perhaps the most important political figure of the 20th century. His great oratory and leadership during the Second World War were only part of his huge breadth of experience and achievement. Studying his life is a fascinating way to imbibe the history of his era and gain insight into key events that have shaped our time.

    Wolfpacker says: "Superb - Review of Both Volume I & Volume II"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    This is Manchester at his very best -- a richly detailed and beautifully written biography of the 20th Century's most extraordinary figure. Frederick Davidson's narration is pitch perfect throughout. He breathes life into the characters, uncannily capturing their voices and personalities. His handling of Churchill in particular is remarkable -- it is hard to believe that you're not hearing the voice of Churchill himself. Listening to this book is a thoroughly enriching experience. I intend to listen to Volume II as well, but I can tell from the sample that Richard Brown's narration will suffer by comparison to Davidson's. I cannot imagine why Blackstone switched to Brown for Volume II after Davidson did such an exceptional job with Volume I.
