    Roy Jenkins is the author of 18 books, including Gladstone (1997), which won the Whitbread Prize for Biography. Active in British politics for half a century, he entered the House of Commons in 1948 and subsequently served as Minister of Aviation, Home Secretary, and Chancellor of the Exchequer; he has also been the President of the European Commission and Chancellor of Oxford University. In 1987 he took his seat in the House of Lords

    In Churchill, Roy Jenkins provides a comprehensive portrait of Winston Churchill from his childhood to the critical World War II period and beyond in a single, definitive volume. Roy Jenkins combines unparalleled command of British political history and his own high level government experience in a narrative account of Churchill's astounding career that is unmatched in its shrewd insights, its unforgettable anecdotes, the clarity of its overarching themes, and the author's nuanced appreciation of his extraordinary subject.

    Exceptional in its breadth of knowledge and distinguished in its stylish wit and penetrating intelligence, Churchill is one of the finest political biographies of our time.

    • I bought this book from Overstock.com after seeing in in Barnes Noble for regular price. I ordered it on Thursday and recieved it Friday! The shipping couldn't have been better for $2.95. The book includes lots of pictures, including pictures of Churchill's own paintings (that he painted)!
