Winston Churchill has for decades been regarded as one of the greatest statesmen of the 20th century, not just in his home country Britain but in the USA as well, where he continues to be an inspiration to many to this day. In 2002 he was voted The Greatest Briton, and the 2016 movie The Darkest Hour continues his global iconic status as someone who stood up to tyranny in 1940, against all the odds, and prevailed. But while 1940 has deserved iconic status, Churchill's 60 year political career saw as many downs as ups, disasters as well as triumphs, and had he died in 1939 he would, historians judge, have been seen as a failure not the hero he went on to become. So we need to see the whole of Churchill's life to gain a proper perspective, and that is exactly what this book sets out to achieve Includes a detailed chronology of Churchill's life, family, and work. The A to Z section includes the major events, places, and people in Churchill's life. The bibliography includes a list of publications concerning his life and work. The index thoroughly cross-references the chronological and encyclopedic entries.

Christopher Catherwood is a writer in Cambridge, England. He is a Fellow of the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust and of the Royal Historical Society and the author of many books on Winston Churchill including Churchill's Folly and Churchill Greatest Briton. He was twice elected to an Archives By-Fellowship at the Churchill Archives Centre and gave a Crosby Kemper Lecture at Westminster College in Fulton MO where Churchill gave his famous Iron Curtain speech in 1948.
'The writings by Winston Churchill are may and varied yet pale in comparison to the many volumes about this great leader. Christopher Catherwood's timely 'Reader's Guide' brings together a full list of the best works on Churchill with a full accounting of all Churchill's own publications. This, coupled with a very useful biographical essay, make this guide invaluable to anyone seeking to know more of Churchill, his role in the 20h century and the continuing fascination with his legacy in the 21st'. Rob Havers President and CEO, Pritzker Military Museum & Library "Christopher Catherwood has brought his wide knowledge of Churchilliana and sound judgement to the compilation of a splendid reference work on a wide variety of matters concerning the great war leader. The result is both a useful reference work and an unfailingly delightful entertainment." Graham Farmelo Fellow at Churchill College, Cambridge Author of Churchill's Bomb: How the United States Overtook Britain in the First Nuclear Arms Race "This book provides an easy introduction to the complex world of Churchill scholarship." Allen Packwood Director of the Churchill Archives Centre at Churchill College
