This is one title in a series of short, illustrated biographies. They tell the stories of those who have shaped our present and our past, from Beethoven to Dietrich, from Einstein to Churchill. Suitable for students and the general reader, they contain a chronology, full index, and guide to further reading. Winston Churchill (1874-1965), British Prime Minister and leader of the wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, is a towering figure. When he died, writes the author, "one might have thought it was not a man who was being born to his grave, but British history itself". Haffner, whose writing influenced Churchill's policy towards Germany and the Nazis, places Churchill the warrior, poet and advrnturer alongside Churchill the statesman.

Author Biography

Sebastian Haffner was 'one of the outstanding figures in European journalism' (Guardian, 1999). He emigrated to London from Berlin in the 1930s and became a vocal critic of the Nazi regime, writing influential articles in the Observer. After the war, he became Germany's pre-eminent political commentator. His many books include Germany: Jekyll and Hyde and The Meaning of Hitler and most recently Defying Hitler: A Memoir (Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2002).
