From the beginning to the end of this all encompassing novel I was thoroughly engaged in the drawn out personal, political and military battles leading up to and through WW II. Churchill's account of the war can hardly be questioned considering his complete immersion in all the major events of the war years. He seems balanced in his views relative to the strengths and weaknesses of all the major combatants and his wry humor is evident throughout. His meetings with Stalin were particularly informative and entertaining. Christian Rodska's vocal impersonation of Churchill was spot on and yet he was equally persuasive as he switched from character to character.
Churchill's personal meetings with Roosevelt and Stalin were both poignant and heroic. The interactions between the old English Warhorse and the Russian revolutionary were combative at times and yet is was obvious that there was a certain warmth and mutual respect that could be seen throughout.
No, this was my first opportunity
No, it is a very long enterprise.
