One of the greatest historians writing today gives us a defining portrait of the incomparable Winston Churchill In his landmark biography of Winston Churchill, acclaimed historian John Keegan offers a very human portrait of one of the twentieth century's enduring symbols of heroic defiance. From Churchill's youth as a poor student to his leadership during World War II, Keegan reveals a man whose own idea of an English past—eloquently embodied in his speeches—allowed him to exhort a nation to unprecedented levels of sacrifice. The result is a uniquely discerning look at one of the most fascinating personalities in history. “The best military historian of our generation.” –Tom Clancy

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER One of The Wall Street Journal’s Ten Best Books of 2018 One of The Economist’s Best Books of 2018 One of The New York Times’s Notable Books of 2018 “Unarguably the best single-volume biography of Churchill . . . A brilliant feat of storytelling, monumental in scope, yet put together with tenderness for a man who had always believed that he would be Britain’s savior.” —Wall Street Journal In this landmark biography of Winston Churchill based on extensive new material, the true genius of the man, statesman and leader can finally be fully seen and understood--by the bestselling, award-winning author of Napoleon and The Storm of War. When we seek an example of great leaders with unalloyed courage, the person who comes to mind is Winston Churchill: the iconic, visionary war leader immune from the consensus of the day, who stood firmly for his beliefs when everyone doubted him. But how did young Winston become Churchill? What gave him the strength to take on the superior force of Nazi Germany when bombs rained on London and so many others had caved? In Churchill, Andrew Roberts gives readers the full and definitive Winston Churchill, from birth to lasting legacy, as personally revealing as it is compulsively readable. Roberts gained exclusive access to extensive new material: transcripts of War Cabinet meetings, diaries, letters and unpublished memoirs from Churchill's contemporaries. The Royal Family permitted Roberts--in a first for a Churchill biographer--to read the detailed notes taken by King George VI in his diary after his weekly meetings with Churchill during World War II. This treasure trove of access allows Roberts to understand the man in revelatory new ways, and to identify the hidden forces fueling Churchill's legendary drive. We think of Churchill as a hero who saved civilization from the evils of Nazism and warned of the grave crimes of Soviet communism, but Roberts's masterwork reveals that he has as much to teach us about the challenges leaders face today--and the fundamental values of courage, tenacity, leadership and moral conviction.

Desde la muerte de Napoleón Bonaparte en 1821 se han escrito innumerables libros sobre su vida. Todas las editadas desde 1857 se han basado en la correspondencia que publicó su sobrino Napoleón III, distorsionada con fines políticos. Sin embargo desde 2004, la Fondation Napoléon de París ha sacado a la luz todas y cada una de las más de 33.000 cartas que firmó el propio Napoleón. La culminación de este ingente proyecto exige una reevaluación completa de la visión de este gran personaje, y esta es la primera tarea que Roberts realiza a fondo en este libro. El autor, premiado historiador inglés, no se ha detenido en esta complicada reconstrucción sino que se han involucrado vitalmente en esta biografía. Descubrió nuevos documentos cruciales, repitió siglos después el viaje en barco de Napoleón a Santa Helena e inspeccionó cincuenta y tres escenarios bélicos en los que combatió Napoleón. El resultado de esta titánica tarea es una obra maestra sobre este controvertido personaje. La biografía definitiva de un hombre que fue capaz de modificar la historia. "Una nueva biografía de escala épica... Roberts transmite brillantemente la energía y fuerza de Napoleón... articularmente en la dramática escenificación de batallas decisivas como Austerlitz, Jena, y Marengo, convirtiendo audaces maniobras militares en poderosos momentos políticos". -THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW "Una emocionante historia militar y política... Roberts es un escritor de talento poco común". -THE WASHINGTON POST "Fantástico, rico en anécdotas... Robert es un maestro de la narración". -Max Hastings, WALL STREET JOURNAL "Un auténtico triunfo napoleónico en un libro en el que se galopa irresistiblemente con la fuerza de una carga de caballería... Aquí está, por fin, la biografía definitiva". -Simon Sebag Montefiore, EVENING STANDAR, BOOKS OF THE YEAR "Entretenido, incluso adictivo... Roberts escribe con gran vigor, estilo y fluidez". -THE SUNDAY TIMES "Una biografía enorme, rica, profunda, ingeniosa, humana y admirable que es un placer de leer". -THE TELEGRAPH "El Napoleón de Andrew Roberts es muy entretenido y proactivo, no defrauda con sus brillantes descripciones y juicios profundos". -Antony Beevor, THE MAIL ON SUNDAY, BOOKS OF THE YEAR "Roberts no solo nos acerca la historia de Napoleón a la actualidad, sino que, con documentación inédita y un planteamiento original, nos convence de porqué en el siglo XXI todos debemos volver a leer sobre el pequeño corso". -THE OBSERVER

Most people today think of Winston Churchill as simply the wartime British bulldog - a jowly, cigar-chomping old fighter demanding blood, sweat and tears from his nation. But the well-known story of the elder statesman has overshadowed an earlier part of his life that is no less fascinating, and that has never before been fully told. It is a tale of romance, ambition, intrigue and glamour in Edwardian London, when the city was the centre of the world, and when its best and brightest were dazzled by the meteoric rise to power of a young politician with a famous name and a long aristocratic background. Winston Churchill gave his maiden speech in Parliament at the very beginning of King Edward VII's reign in 1901 when he was only 26. By the time the guns of August 1914 swept away the Edwardian idyll, he was First Lord of the Admiralty - the civilian head of the largest navy in the world. In the intervening years, he often cut a dashing figure, romancing several society beauties, tangling with some of the most powerful political figures of his time, championing major social reforms, becoming one of the leading orators of the day, publishing six books, supervising an armed assault on anarchists, and working harder perhaps than anyone else to prepare his nation for war.

"I am perhaps the only man who has passed through the twosupreme cataclysms of recorded history in high executive office... I was in thissecond struggle with Germany for more than five years the head of His Majesty'sGovernment. I write therefore from a different standpoint and with moreauthority than was possible in my earlier books. I do not describe it as ahistory, for that belongs to another generation. But I claim with confidencethat it is a contribution to history which will be of service to the future." Sir Winston Churchill From the origins of the conflict, the rise of Hitler and thefutile attempts at appeasement, through the darkest days of Britain's lonestand against the Axis powers, the great alliances with the USA and SovietRussia and the triumphs of D Day and the eventual liberation of Europe to theterrible birth of the Cold War under the shadow of nuclear weaponry, this isWinston Churchill's landmark history of World War II. At once a personalaccount and a majesterial history, TheSecond World War remains Churchill's literary masterpiece.

The story of the complex relationship between two world leaders during one of the greatest crises in human history. Born just two weeks apart in 1874, Winston Churchill and William Lyon Mackenzie King had much in common. Both forged long parliamentary careers, and each led his country to victory in World War II. A BBC poll deemed Winston Churchill the greatest Briton of all time, and Mackenzie King has been judged by a group of historians as the greatest Canadian prime minister. Their parallel careers fostered a working relationship that lasted almost fifty years. It was not always an easy relationship, however. Churchill, famous for his drink and cigars, was impetuous and charismatic, an extrovert; King, a teetotaller during WWII, was noted for considering all options before cautiously proceeding. Fate threw this ill-matched pair together. For the first time, the vital relationship between these two very different men is explored in depth. It is the story not just of two extraordinary leaders, but also of the changing bonds between Britain and Canada.

Johnson illuminates the various phases of Churchill's career—from his adventures as a young cavalry officer in the service of the empire to his role as an elder statesman prophesying the advent of the Cold War—and shows how Churchill's immense adaptability and innate pugnacity made him a formidable leader for the better part of a century. Johnson's narration of Churchill's many triumphs and setbacks, rich with anecdote and quotation, illustrates the man's humor, resilience, courage, and eccentricity as no other biography before, and is sure to appeal to historians and general nonfiction readers alike.

"I enjoyed this book. It provides excellent information on the current use of healthcare teams and partnerships. It is a worthwhile resource for anyone interested in developing and working with healthcare teams." Score: 100, 5 Stars.--Doody's Medical Reviews Teamwork is an undisputed asset for reducing nursing and medical errors, improving quality of patient care, resolving workload issues, and avoiding burnout. This text helps to foster the leadership expertise and partnerships that will facilitate the delivery of the highest-quality care. It based on the time-tested wisdom that leadership knowledge, skills and, competencies gained by training a group of nurses in the same organization rather than a single nurse are much more likely to result in genuine organizational transformation. It is the only text available to focus in depth on building and maintaining effective partnerships, motivating and developing others in the team, organizational analysis, strategizing, communicating, planning and managing change, measuring team and partnership effectiveness through metrics, and leveraging results within and outside of the organization. Case studies across a variety of organizations and environments and drawn from years of nursing team and leadership training, illuminate key points and provide readers with real life examples of the application of key concepts. These include such scenarios as developing a team to create, implement and evaluate a nurse residency program in a large tertiary hospital; creating a cross-agency public health team to plan and deploy rural H1N1 responses; founding a multi-campus team for the creation and implementation of a new BSN curriculum; and leadership in a partnership to support the legislative creation of a nursing workforce center. Learning objectives, tables, charts, models, and questions for thought in each chapter reinforce information in the text. Plentiful references provide opportunities for further study. Authored by a noted expert in education, team building, and policy making in nursing and health care, the book will be of value to emerging and seasoned leaders and graduate educators and students, including CNL, DNP, and NPs. Key Features: Examines, in depth, team leadership and professional, clinical, and educational partnering in and for nursing Features real-life case studies in diverse practice and academic centers Offers a practical approach to applying team leadership and partnership concepts when facilitating health care change Reviews team models and skills, how to take action, issues and challenges along the way, measuring results, and applying leverage to sustain gains Presents information in a concise, step-by-step format replete with learning objectives, tables, charts, and questions for thought

The construction of the European Community (EC) has widely been understood as the product of either economic self-interest or dissatisfaction with the nation-state system. In Europe United, Sebastian Rosato challenges these conventional explanations, arguing that the Community came into being because of balance of power concerns. France and the Federal Republic of Germany—the two key protagonists in the story—established the EC at the height of the cold war as a means to balance against the Soviet Union and one another. More generally, Rosato argues that international institutions, whether military or economic, largely reflect the balance of power. In his view, states establish institutions in order to maintain or increase their share of world power, and the shape of those institutions reflects the wishes of their most powerful members. Rosato applies this balance of power theory of cooperation to several other cooperative ventures since 1789, including various alliances and trade pacts, the unifications of Italy and Germany, and the founding of the United States. Rosato concludes by arguing that the demise of the Soviet Union has deprived the EC of its fundamental purpose. As a result, further moves toward political and military integration are improbable, and the economic community is likely to unravel to the point where it becomes a shadow of its former self.
