Hillsdale College professor Will Morrisey says they may be the two greatest statesmen on their time, and he’s written a book about them: Churchill and de Gaulle: The Geopolitics of Liberty.Bookmonger Churchill de Gualle

The case for Churchill’s greatness is familiar, but what about the French guy? In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Morrisey explains his admiration for a leader whose career spanned much of the 20th century, from the horrors of First World War, through the disaster of the Second World War, and on to the West’s confrontation with Communism in the Cold War.

Morrisey’s book is fundamentally about the nature of statesmanship, and we also discuss the educational formation of great leaders and what we can learn from their example today.
