    Greatest Man of the Twentieth Century

    This is a single volume on Churchill's life from birth to death. Obviously Gilbert has used the research from his outstanding multi volume series on Churchill. There are highlights and notes throughout. The clear message that anyone reading this book should take away from it is that WSC was the right man, in the right place, at the right time. His appointment as PM on May 10, 1940 was the single most important event in the twentieth century. This appointment, and his subsequent performance during the war shaped the second half of the last century. Without his presence on the world stage the Second World War would likely have ended differently, to the detriment of future generations.

    A good overview

    Perhaps unsurprisingly given that Gilbert was a researcher and later writer of an eight volume biography of Churchill (plus 14 other books about Churchill), the one volume condensed version is heavy on a recitation of events rather than really putting those events in context. It would be impossible to do a great job of covering everything in one volume given the sheer number of events Churchill was actively involved in, so this shortcoming is understandable. On this front, this bio has only encouraged me to read a more in-depth multi-volume bio now that I have the broad strokes down. From other reading, it seems like Churchill is more of a controversial figure than this bio would lead you to believe, particularly his legacy in parts of the empire outside of England. This is something else I would like to see explored further.
