Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: Revered for his strength of character and his willful defiance of Nazi Germany when Britain stood alone against the Third Reich, Winston Churchill is cherished as one of World War IIs most heroic figures, not only within the United Kingdom but throughout the world. His legacy during one of the darkest eras in human history paints a portrait of the man as a wonderful, larger-than-life personality a characterization that overshadows his faults and his foibles in those crucial years.

But those faults and foibles had a devastating legacy of their own.

Winston Churchill The Flawed Genius of World War II examines the decisions and policies Churchill made in the vital months between June 1940 and December 1941 that hindered more than helped the Allied cause. From dispatching British troops to North Africa and Greece and establishing the Special Operations Executive, to his insistence on the Mediterraneans importance to victory and ignoring George C. Marshalls plan that would have won the war in 1943, Churchills directives not only extended the conflict, but also destabilized several regions that remain in chaos even at the dawn of the twenty-first century.

With profound insight into Churchills early colonial experiences as well as his first tenure as First Lord of the Admiralty, Christopher Catherwood offers an honest appraisal of his strategies in a unique and fascinating perspective that separates the myth from the man.
