Description

A Renowned Historian Gives New Perspective on Revered Leaders Separated by eighty years, Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill led their nations to victory in wars of national survival-Lincoln in the Civil War, Churchill in World War II-and became revered leaders, writers and speakers, and statesmen for all time. Yet the two have never been seriously compared at book length. Acclaimed historian Lewis Lehrman finds that Lincoln and Churchill led their wars in remarkably similar fashion, guided by fixed principles of honor, duty, and freedom. Gifted literary stylists, both also relied on the written and spoken word to steel their nation's hearts and give meaning to war's sacrifice. And though both unexpectedly left office near the end of their wars-Lincoln by the bullet, Churchill by the ballot-they had gained victory.
