The Churchill Factor

How One Man Made History

´The must-read biography of the year.´ Evening Standard

He writes with gusto... the result is a book that is never boring, genuinely clever ... this book sizzles.´ The Times

´The point of the Churchill Factor is that one man can make all the difference.´

On the eve of the fiftieth anniversary of Winston Churchill´s death, and written in conjunction with the Churchill Estate, Boris Johnson explores what makes up the ´Churchill Factor´ - the singular brilliance of one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century. Taking on the myths and misconceptions along with the outsized reality, he portrays - with characteristic wit and passion - a man of multiple contradictions, contagious bravery, breath-taking eloquence, matchless strategizing, and deep humanity.

Fearless on the battlefield, Churchill had to be ordered by the King to stay out of action on D-Day; he embraced large-scale strategic bombing, yet hated the destruction of war and scorned politicians who had not experienced its horrors. He was a celebrated journalist, a great orator and won the Nobel Prize for Literature. He was famous for his ability to combine wining and dining with many late nights of crucial wartime decision-making. His open-mindedness made him a pioneer in health care, education, and social welfare, though he remained incorrigibly politically incorrect.

Most of all, as Boris Johnson says, ´Churchill is the resounding human rebuttal to all who think history is the story of vast and impersonal economic forces´.

The Churchill Factor is a book to be enjoyed not only by anyone interested in history: it is essential reading for anyone who wants to know what makes a great leader.
