  • This terrific book, which bursts with character, humour and incident on almost every page ... is undoubtedly the best single-volume life of Churchill ever written

    Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times
  • The best single-volume life imaginable

    Simon Heffer, Sunday Telegraph
  • It's the sort of biography that, one feels, Churchill himself would have wanted. Colossal, energetic, deeply knowledgeable, properly critical, but also sympathetic and, in places, deliciously funny

    Noel Malcolm, Sunday Telegraph
  • An original portrait of an all-too-familiar figure ... He enriches the saga with wonderful examples of Churchill's aristocratic eccentricity, glittering oratory and wit

    Piers Brendon, Literary Review
  • Roberts has produced a more complete picture of his subject than any previous biography. His certainly knocks into a cocked hat Boris Johnson's boisterously self-referential effort of a few years ago

    Economist
  • A stupendous achievement: lucid, erudite, intelligent, but also inspiring. Roberts catches the imperishable grandeur of Churchill's life as no other historian has done

    Daniel Johnson, Standpoint
  • As Andrew Roberts reminds us in this epic biography ... Churchill's career provides ample proof that fact can be far more extraordinary than fiction

    Nick Rennison, Daily Mail
  • A work of unequalled scholarship. Read it and you will not have to bother with the previous 1,000 biographies

    Paul Routledge, Tablet
  • A heroic biography, appropriately matched to the ambition, egotism and undoubted achievement of the life it describes

    John Campbell, Finest Hour
  • Brilliant, breathtaking, unputdownable ... All Roberts's past life has been but a preparation for this hour and this work, and this brilliant book is a fitting crown to his own career

    Michael Gove, Evening Standard
