    "Churchill's War", vol. I: "Struggle for Power" WHEN I was born in ," observes the author, "the British Empire was at its greatest extent. By the end of Churchill's war, it was becoming extinct."

There was an article written several years ago for The Churchill's Centre quarterly publication F. "Reading about Churchill is always a delight, and Johnson is an accomplished, accessible writer." —Kirkus Reviews Praise for Johnson’s Life of London “A sparkling blend of history, biography, and geography Johnson’s exuberant paean makes a persuasive case that genius breeds genius.” —The New York Times Book Review.

    Praise for Eight Days at Yalta: “A colorful chronicle of high-stakes negotiations and a study in human frailties, missteps, and ideological blunders.” — Washington Post “Ms. Preston’s conference narrative abjures authorial hindsight judgments, placing the spotlight instead on the characters’ natural blind spots and biases. The book is close to a thousand pages, so it is going to take a while. I also left a lot of ink in margins, which added to the time frame. But it is time well spent. Almost every page provides something of interest. The book ends with many lead-ins to today`s current issues. Churchill is against joining an early form of the EU/5().
