[the World That Made Him and the World He Made]Audiobook on MP3 CD - 2010
Churchill's image is as an imperial die-hard, implacably opposed to colonial freedom. However, his relationship to Empire is far more complex and ambiguous. Written by the acclaimed young historian Richard Toye, this absorbing book is the first to provide a comprehensive account of Churchill's lifelong involvement with the British Empire, from his childhood schooldays to his final premiership in the 1950s. Combining a lightness of touch and surprising detail with expert and insightful hypotheses, and drawing upon a wealth of published and unpublished evidence - from private diaries to African war poetry - Churchill's Empire provides a vivid and dynamic account of a remarkable man and an extraordinary era.
