    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"
    "Is this Churchill or a History of Empire"

    Story
    Would you try another book from William Manchester and/or Frederick Davidson?

    Yes I intend to read the follow up in the 2nd part of the series.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    While I appreciate the lengths the writer goes to provide context for Churchill's biography it is, in my opinion, over done. I believe there was ample opportunity to educate me with out so much superfluousness information about minute details of the daily lives of his associates.


    What aspect of Frederick Davidson’s performance would you have changed?

    Abbreviate and present only the most interesting content.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If this were a book it would be 15 hours long and then you'd still have to watch the sequel to find out what happens.


    Any additional comments?

    He does a nice job of speaking and imitating voices, even if he does come across a little pompous.
