Sir Martin Gilbert At His Best, Perfected By Christian Rodska

Long story short, Sir Martin Gilbert is the gold standard when it comes to Churchill biographies. For being dubbed, "The Official Churchill Biographer," he is incredibly fair and even in his portrayal of the man. Whilst presenting the complexities of his character and the times he lived, it brings forth a truly human picture. Yet also managing to uphold the most important duty of any historian, analyzing history within the context that it occurred.

Christian Rodska, as usual, is masterful. There is no audiobook written or regarding Winston Churchill that is complete without Rodska's singular contribution.

Interesting and compelling

Superb narrator. Exciting and energetic narrative. Account of Churchill politically illuminating but some lack of complexity in regard to components of his personality and the historical events to which he devoted himself.
