Carlo D'Este examines the life of Winston Churchill through his military service as both a soldier and warlord. He was the descendent of the first Duke of Marlborough who, despite never having risen above the rank of lieutenant colonel, eventually came at the age of sixty-five to direct Britain's military campaigns in the greatest conflict of the twentieth century.
D'Este explores Churchill's strategies in both world wars – the disastrous failures as well as the dazzling triumphs, and casts fresh light on his tumultuous relationships with his generals. Warlord is a masterful, unsparing portrait of one of history's most fascinating and influential leaders.
