Carlo D'Este's startlingly fresh biography examines Winston Churchill through the prism of this military service as both a soldier and commander. A descendant of the great Duke of Marlborough who, despite never having himself risen above the rank of lieutenant colonel, came eventually at age 65 to direct Britain's military campaigns during the defining conflict of the twentieth century.

Even though Churchill became one of the towering political leaders of the century, his childhood ambition was to be a soldier. Using extensive untapped archival materials, D'Este reveals important and previously untold observations from many of those who surrounded Churchill, and also explores Churchill's strategy behind the major military campaigns of World War II (both his dazzling successes and distastrous failures) and tumultous relationships with his generals.

Warlord gives us many new insights into the Greatest Briton, and even those who think they know his career well will find much new information as well as many new perspectives here.
