In observance of the 50th anniversary of his death, this very engaging work gives us insight into the man and his place in history. For scholars, writers seeking to know more about Churchill and his impact on the world as we know it, and for those of us who are amateur historians this book deserves a place on your TBR list. Published Oct. 23, 2014, this would make a great gift for the history buffs on your list. I highly recommend it.

The Churchill Factor: How One Man Made History
Throughout the history of man, great leaders have emerged when needed. Through many of them we see that one man can make a difference. The Churchill Factor tells of one such man in a refreshing manner. Reading about this man and his exploits could have been plodding and full of ponderous thoughts and conclusions. It is not. The book is written in such a way that the reader feels as if he/she knows and usually understands this historical figure who is still larger than life to most of us.
