Churchill's War Leadership
Renowned Churchill historian Sir Martin Gilbert examines Winston Churchill's war leadership.
CONTINUE TO PESTER, NAG AND BITE is a brilliant, close-up look at Winston Churchill's leadership during the Second World War. Gilbert gets to the crux of eternal questions that have plagued the world's most powerful leaders, even up to the recently battlescarred politicians such as George Bush and Tony Blair. How does a war leader pace and pattern his day? How does he draw help and inspiration from those around him? How does he assess the information that is brought to him? How does his personal or political philosophy, or moral sense, sustain him? How does he deal with setbacks and disasters? What part do the secret worlds of Intelligence and Deception play in his decisions? How much of what he has to do must be kept secret? By looking behind the public figure and wartime propaganda images, Gilbert reveals a very human, sensitive, and often tormented man, who nevertheless found the strength to lead his nation forward from the darkest and most dangerous of times, towards the defeat of a tenacious enemy.
