    This was an excellent Churchill volume and biography of this time frame. I learned a lot of new things that were not in some of the other Churchill biographies. We certainly didn't learn this stuff in history class in high school or college for that matter. Martin Gilbert does a wonderful job here and documents things extremely well. During this 6 years, Winston was a member of Lloyd George's cabinet and held top minister posts at the Ministry of Munitions, the War Office and the Colonial Office This was an excellent Churchill volume and biography of this time frame. I learned a lot of new things that were not in some of the other Churchill biographies. We certainly didn't learn this stuff in history class in high school or college for that matter. Martin Gilbert does a wonderful job here and documents things extremely well. During this 6 years, Winston was a member of Lloyd George's cabinet and held top minister posts at the Ministry of Munitions, the War Office and the Colonial Office. The issues WC dealt with during this time included the Russian issue and the Bolsheviks. He was anti-Bolshevik and anti commie. Irish Home Rule was still an issue and the Sinn Feins and the IRA wanted GB out. Lots of folks were killed. Turkey and Iraq and the Middle East was a big issue. Turkey and Greece were at odds. All were fighting over land and resources-what is else new! While at the Colonial Office WC dealt with the Jewish homeland issue, Palestine, and who would rule Iraq and Jordan. He was a defender of the Balfour Declaration. WC was with the Liberal Coalition party at this time but kept to his values against socialism and communism. I liked the fact that he was innovative-this is not something you hear about. WC wanted air power and was pushing new things in technology that would be helpful in a future war, which he forecast. There's so much, I took mega notes and have already started volume 5. Thank you and RIP Martin Gilbert. Well done!

    Always an interesting subject. Having red the previous three volumes of his biography I continue to learn something new about Winston Churchill and those around him. He was truly a servant to his government and a leader among men even when it was not popular. Well worth the time investment and an enjoyable experience.

    "On 7 July 1921 he (Churchill) told the Imperial Conference in London that if Britain could become ‘the Ally of France and the friend of Germany’, she should then be in a position ‘to mitigate the frightful rancour and fear and hatred which exist between France and Germany at the present time and which, if left unchecked, will most certainly in a generation or so bring about a renewal of the struggle of which we have just witnessed the conclusion’. WSC It's these forward-looking insights by Chur "On 7 July 1921 he (Churchill) told the Imperial Conference in London that if Britain could become ‘the Ally of France and the friend of Germany’, she should then be in a position ‘to mitigate the frightful rancour and fear and hatred which exist between France and Germany at the present time and which, if left unchecked, will most certainly in a generation or so bring about a renewal of the struggle of which we have just witnessed the conclusion’. WSC It's these forward-looking insights by Churchill that Mr Gilbert has woven together from the mountains of material available. Gilbert's gift is his ability to order all this in a linear mode with his own insights along with Churchills peers and family memos and correspondence. I give it a four out of five. Mr Gilbert seems to hold back criticism of WSC. What we get is an overview of six of the most crucial years for the world post WW I. We go from the trenches to the Cabinet with Winston and what a ride. As told by the master of our uncommon language as he lived it. Gilbert is fair and straight forward leaving the reader to measure WSCs own weight of truth and impact.
