Born into aristocracy, Churchill cut his teeth as a young army officer in British India, the Sudan, and the Second Boer War. He rose in the ranks to First Lord of the Admiralty and was a staunch opponent of the encroaching German Nazis. Churchill served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, Churchill was also a historian, a writer, and an artist. He is the only Prime Minister to have won the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.

The summer of 1940 was one of history's darkest hours. Adolf Hitler had conquered Europe, and only Britain remained defiant. But it seemed a German invasion of her shores was just a matter of time. The British leadership was in despair. They thought the only way to save Britain was to give in and make peace with Hitler. But one man refused to bow his head to the evil of Nazism: the new British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. His words of defiance roused the hearts and minds of Britain's citizens and they resolved never to surrender to the Nazis, whatever the price. With richly detailed full color illustrations, the Heroes of Liberty book series provides entertaining, story-driven biographies of American leaders who have embodied the values of freedom, faith, and family.  46 pages, hardcover. Ages 7 to 12.

As a visionary, a statesman, and historian, and the most eloquent spokesman against Nazi Germany, Winston Churchill was one of the greatest figures of the twentieth century. In this autobiography, Churchill recalls his childhood, his schooling, his years as a war correspondent in South Africa during the Boer War, and his first forays into politics as a member of Parliament. My Early Life not only gives readers insights into the shaping of a great leader but as Churchill himself wrote, "a picture of a vanished age."

An enormously entertaining compendium of witticisms, anecdotes, and trivia about Winston Churchill by a former White House speechwriter.

A New York Times bestseller, this comprehensive biography illuminates Churchill's soul, going for a much more comprehensive look at his life that mere events and historical events. Black and white plates accompany the detailed chapters, showcasing every nuance, instance, and happening in Churchill's ascendancy to prime minister and savior of England. 768 pages, softcover.

    Winston Churchill both experienced and influenced the great social and political changes of the first half of the twentieth century. Chruchill was elected to Parliament in 1900; by the time he resigned as Prime Minister of Great Britain, in 1955, he had served under six monarchs and through two world wars. He had changed political parties twice, worked for social reforms, been voted in and out of office, and advocated strong government action to solve problems, even when it was unpopular.

        Winston Churchill was one of the most extraordinary leaders of the twentieth century. What enabled him to stand steadfastly when all those around him seemed to wither in fear? What enabled him to inspire whole nations to endure the unendurable and to achieve the unachievable when all around him others had already surrendered all hope? This book answers these questions and many more. It is a remarkable study of Churchill's leadership skills as they grew from his steadfast character. The result is an account that is no less inspiring today than it was three-quarters of a century ago when the great man's shadow fell large across the world stage.
