Customer Review

on 22 December 2013
Freeman's biography of Churchill during this period that was crucial, both in Churchill's career and in British history, is lucid, clear and informative.

I was surprised to discover that the popular view (that Churchill was responsible for the disaster of Gallipoli) is wrong both in the sense that it wasn't really a disaster (at least not compared to the loss of life on the Western Front) and that it would almost certainly have turned out differently if Churchill had got his way. This, and many other commonly held presuppositions about the man and his work, are comprehensively demolished by Freeman. Nevertheless he is no Churchill apologist, drawing attention to his egotism, follies and errors.

On a couple of occasions there are minor unnecessary repetitions of material already covered but these do not detract from its overall excellence. A solid 5 stars.
