About the Authors
  • Winston Churchill had an acute appreciation of what belongs to war and what belongs to peace. We tend to remember his resistance to Nazi tyranny during the Second World War and his actions as a man of war. In this book, scholars from the United States, Great Britain, and South Africa examine his other actions and comments, those that reflect the primary focus of Churchill's long career: his attempts to keep and restore peace throughout the world, from Queen Victoria's little wars to the Cold War.

    • Shows Churchill as man of peace, not just of war, and explores his understanding of how statesmen chose which path to follow
    • Fascinating story of Churchill's peacemaking efforts all over the world
    • Includes new work by leading scholars from three continents, including Churchill's official biographer Martin Gilbert
