Summary
"This book uncovers myths surrounding Winston Churchill to reveal what he really said and did about many issues. Churchill had two personas--one that thought deeply about the nature of humanity, and one that helped to solve seemingly intractable problems. In his many decades in public life, he made mistakes, but his faults were eclipsed by his virtues"--
