“WHAT AN EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE”

What Churchill Owed the Great Republic
“…a life which before 1895 seemed destined to yield a narrow range of skimpy achievements became, from 1895 onwards, a life of glorious epitomes and stunning vindications….Winston’s exposure to his mother’s homeland struck a spark in his spirit that illuminated the long and arduous road…to his rendezvous with greatness.”

By Robert H. Pilpel

Robert H. Pilpel is the author of Churchill in America, To the Honor of the Fleet, and other works of history and fiction. He has donated the rights to Churchill in America to The Churchill Centre, which seeks a grant to republish this seminal work. Opposite: Churchill in 1899. Read More >
