Consistently ranked as one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century, Winston Churchill was also very often in the wrong: he brazenly contradicted his own previous political stances, was a disastrous military strategist, and inspired dislike and distrust through much of his life. Charting the evolution of Churchill's reputation through to the present day, Geoffrey Wheatcroft illuminates key moments and controversies, from the tragedy of Gallipoli, to his imperialist and racist attitudes, dealings with Ireland, support for Zionism, and complicated engagement with European integration.
