Winston Churchill's War

This is a story of greatness – the story of how a man, matched to a moment in history, become a giant.  A range of experts on the war years, and on the life of Winston Churchill, illuminate a story that also includes Churchill’s own words, and those of his contemporaries. We explore his writings, his speeches, we illustrate through the archive the war he fought, the choices he made, the mistakes he made and the plans that were over-ruled by an increasingly dominant ally. This is a series about relationships: Churchill and his ministers. Churchill and his generals. Churchill and his allies. Churchill and the public. Churchill and the cause of victory – even Churchill and the truth.
