                    Churchill: A Study in Greatness
                    Source: Amazon
                    Author: Geoffrey Best
                    City: London, Country: United Kingdom
                    From an Amazon reader: "There are, at least, three reasons which qualify the book as splendid: First, it is magnificently written, so it's a pleasure to read. Second, it condenses the life of W.C. in just over 300 pages, which is a notable feat considering such a rich and interesting life (of course most of the details cannot be dealt with), and, third, wherever the author comes across a historically conflictive subject -- for example the battle of Gallipoll -- he gives a balanced opinion." (2001)
