Reader Comments

Enjoy the read immensely, will definitely stay on the bookshelf for a second read.
A highly original and creative account of Churchill's role in the early years of the Second World War. This is a unique composition, which deserves to be celebrated as such.
This is an amazing book written in 'heroic poem form'. The author writes beautifully and with ardour! It takes the reader through from 1931 when Hitler was coming to power, to 1941 when the Unites States entered the war. We were given hope and courage by this amazing man. If there is anyone who was alive in these very difficult times, I thoroughly reoommend it to you all. I read it three times during one day.
The metre is flawless and really adds to the drama of the narrative. This is a must for people interested in Churchill.
