    Story
    (49)

    In these 12 inspiring lectures, Professor Fears presents a well-balanced portrait of Churchill that does not whitewash his flaws. Yet he also draws on the most recent historical scholarship and material from Churchill's writings and speeches to make the case that Churchill belongs with Pericles of Athens and Abraham Lincoln as one of the greatest statesmen in the history of democracy.

    Jean says: "A great review of Churchill's life"
    "Informative"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Churchill the most enjoyable?

    The professor obviously enjoys the subject matter and you hear it as he seems excited at times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is a mixture of personal and professional information given and churchills humour is injected throughout


    What does Professor J. Rufus Fears bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The professors obvious enjoyment gives an energy to the book


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Never have so many owed so much to just one


    Any additional comments?

    Americans always try to insert themselves into stories, Dunkirk was a massive achievement by thousands of army, navy and airforce professionals of the armies of Europe not to mention the efforts given by civilians who put themselves into the front to save the withdrawing troops, but the professor twice mentions a lone American on a yacht. Every American historian seems to have an over inflated idea of their countries involvement in any incident no matter how small
