Book Review: Winston Churchill by John Perry


Winston Churchill by John Perry

Winston Churchill is a biography and autobiography written in an easy to read, informative style. While reading you follow Winston Churchill’s life from childhood to his death. You will clearly learn how influential Churchill was in his country during multiple wars. I feel this book is appropriate for pre-teens to adults who wish to learn more about a dramatic historical figure whose life has ultimately affected our own.

As a teen I had never really learnt anything about Winston Churchill other than he had something to do with a war and the Queen. I wish I had been handed this biography / autobiography as a teen because the author writes in such a clear, concise manner while taking you on a fascinating historical lesson. This book has piqued my curiosity to learn more about this time period in history. I was amazed to learn that Churchill’s doctrine did not leave him determined on whether he’d make it to heaven when he died. He commented that he might make it to heaven or possibly reborn as a Chinese coolie.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to pre-teens and adults to read so that they also can learn more about this amazing time in history and learn more about an amazing hero. Winston Churchill - the man.
