This well-researched, well-written and soundly argued book is a real addition to the avalanche of books on Winston Churchill, illuminating where the military views came from that were so profoundly to affect the twentieth century and beyond.
Andrew Roberts, author of 'Churchill: Walking with Destiny'
This is a thoroughly recommended book and important to appreciate its focus and scope as a welcome addition to the Churchill library.
Aspects of History
A well-researched and well-argued offering that looks at some of [Churchill's] most controversial decisions and how they were influenced by his experiences in the First World War.
Masterful research, impeccable detail, with a beautifully flowing narrative of which Churchill himself would have been proud.
Professor Peter Caddick-Adams
A lively and compelling account of a remarkable military-political career. As eye-opening as it is comprehensive, Tucker-Jones brings to life Churchill's experience of combat and military command and charts the course that made him such a great warlord. Balanced and judicious, this book shows us the full measure of the man – his mistakes, blunders and defeats, as well as the glorious victories.
Professor Geoffrey Roberts
Throughout the book the author offers a well-balanced opinion, & he is critical, but fair, when pointing out some of Churchill's mistakes.
