Warlord

A Life of Churchill at War, 1874-1945

By Carlo D'Este
Narrated by Tom Weiner / 30 hours 4 minutes

Carlo D'Este's brilliant biography examines Winston Churchill through the prism of his military service as both a soldier and a warlord: a descendant of Marlborough who, despite never having risen above the rank of lieutenant colonel, came eventually at age sixty-five to direct Britain's military campaigns as prime minister and to defeat Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito for the democracies. Even though Churchill became one of the towering political leaders of the twentieth century, his childhood ambition was to be a soldier. Warlord explores Churchill's strategies behind the major military campaigns of World War I and World War II-both his dazzling successes and disastrous failures-while also revealing his tumultuous relationships with his generals and other commanders, including Dwight D. Eisenhower.
