Ashley Jackson, an admirer of Best’s book, now offers his own version and let me say that it is a pleasure to read.

Churchill" by Ashley Jackson chiefly focuses on Churchill, the man, and less on the events and his times. 10 people found this helpful.

Ashley Jackson describes the contours and contradictions of Churchill's remarkable life and career as a soldier, politician, historian, journalist, painter and homemaker. In doing so, he resists the temptation to conflate Churchill's post-war career with Britain's demise on the international stage. Nor does he endorse the notion that Churchill became an anachronism as he lived and continued to work, at a prodigious rate, through his seventies and eighties

  • nice book

  • Dozens, if not hundreds, of books were written about Churchill's life. This bears the question as to why so many books were written about him. The most obvious response is because Churchill was personally involved in the most remarkable events of the last century and, in understatement, he lived an eventful life. Many people were actively involved in great events of history. So why is there such an immense literature about Churchill? It seems that Churchill's unique personality is the reason for why Churchill has attracted so much attention. "Churchill" by Ashley Jackson chiefly focuses on Churchill, the man, and less on the events and his times. You won't find here a detailed, day-by-day account of his life, but rather interesting insights into who Churchill was, what drove him, and the events that shaped his life.
