MPL Talks: Winston Churchill & the Battle of Britain
Our Major Leaders of World War II series concludes with a closer look at Winston Churchill.
Our speaker, John Foster—who, in addition to being a librarian, also has a doctorate degree in history—discussed:
- Churchill’s acumen as a leader, speaker, soldier, writer, war correspondent, and drinker.
- Churchill’s relationship with Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Stalin.
For those who want a deeper dive into Churchill’s life, Foster recommends the William Manchester biographies.
