Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Uncommon Knowledge: Winston Churchill: Walking with Destiny

 

How did Winston Churchill defend the British Empire throughout his life? Andrew Roberts, the Roger and Martha Mertz Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution, brings keen insights into the life of Winston Churchill with the book Churchill: Walking with Destiny.

Roberts analyzes the life and policies of Winston Churchill and how he worked to save the British Empire and the world, with the help of the Allies, from the evils of Nazism. The Allied victory in WWII was in large part because of Churchill’s brilliant strategy as well as his conviction to never give in and to defend the British Empire at all costs.

    What can one say other than another fabulous home run for Peter Robinson! I have read so many Churchill biographies and was fortunate to be given this huge and fascinating book for Christmas. Don’t think for a moment that Churchill would have approved of joining the EU and giving up British sovereignty to Brussels. “Never, never give up.”

    I agree, he’d be horrified. 

    He wrote that book in 100 days?! A great interview, Mr. Robinson.

    Re Nicholas Soames, I think that, rather than looking at it as Britain cutting itself loose from the Continent, Churchill would see it as Britain retaining its sovereignty.
