Professor Fears does a wonderful job narrating the life of Churchill. Fears is passionate about Churchill and provides an engaging overview of the man and the context of the times in which he lived. I was already very familiar with Churchill's life and activities during WWII, so I appreciated that Fears spent much time on Churchill's early life and career. He discussed Churchill's relationship with his parents and his fascination with his ancestor, John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough and used that as a framework to understand Churchill throughout the remainder of the lectures. He also analyzed Churchill's politics--made more interesting by his switching of political parties more than one time--as an expression of concern for the common man and freedom for all.
