Andrew Roberts is a major historian and biographer: of World War II, Napoleon, etc. He has now written a life of Churchill, his subject of subjects. This is the one he has been waiting for, preparing for, says Roberts. Jay talks to him about all matters Churchill, or many matters: his intelligence, his literary skill, his American side, his moods, his marriage, his personal habits, his religion (or lack of one), his politics, his views on race, and so on. There is also the question, What do individuals matter in history? This “Q&A” is a superb little tour of Churchill, by one who knows him intimately.

    Interesting interview as always Mr. Nordlinger. Amazing statistic about the use of Napoleon’s name. I also did not know that Churchill admired him so.

    The last biography I read was Andrew’s Napoleon, I am looking forward to reading this one.
