4.0 out of 5 stars Enduring Love For Empire, 4 May 2014
By 
Nico (Australia) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Churchill and Empire (Paperback)
An interesting and well written book about Churchill and his relationship with the Empire. It was to be a long and enduring love from Churchill's perspective anyway, but as with any passionate relationship it certainly had its storms and tensions.The narrative covers Churchill's first contact with Empire as a young cavalry officer till his final hurrah as the aged statesman. What remains consistent throughout this time was Churchill's passionate love of empire and his desire to maintain it. In general the book portrays Churchill in a positive and favourable light. However it also highlights the ambiguities and contraditctions of both the British Empire and Churchill's views on it. Nor does it hide from the racial prejudice associated with Empire nor Churchill's own racial views and predjudces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written, 7 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Churchill and Empire (Hardcover)
This is beautifully written, by a skilled historian. I remember some of the events to which he refers. And more importantly, I recognise many of the attitudes and 'givens' which were instilled in us in the immediate post-Churchillian period. A thoroughly excellent read, highly informative
