Warlord is the definitive chronicle of Churchill's crucial role as one of the world's most renowned military leaders, from his early adventures in India and the Boer War through his extraordinary service in both World Wars.

As riveting as the man it portrays, Warlord is a masterful, unsparing portrait of one of history's most fascinating and influential leaders during what was arguably the most crucial event in human history.
"Elegantly written, this tour de force belongs in every library addressing the 20th century....D'Este is a master analyst of 20th-century military leadership, and this book may be his finest yet." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
A great story of personal endevour and achievement, completely marred by dreadful pronounciation of English and Scottish placeneames and surnames and incorrect emphasis on syllables in common English and English military terms. The story of a truly great English statesman, ruined by horrible ear-gratingly poor pronounciation. Why couldn't it have been read by an Englishman?
Get someone who can speak British English to narate it, not an American who doesn't understand how badly he is mangling the English pronounciation!
Spoiled by lack of attention to getting a good narator.
"Forget Boris's book. This is much better!"
Level headed and revealing biography, concentating on Churchill's political and military career but with plenty of references to his social life and private thoughts. Puts the man in the context of his times. And by doing so, tells us much about the dramatic times he lived through.
