WARLORD A Life of Winston Churchill at War, 1874-1945

by | Read by Tom Weiner

Biography & Memoir • 29 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Starting with young Winston's love of toy soldiers, Carlo D'Este proposed to examine the military aspects of Churchill's later life. He fails to separate the warrior from the statesman but successfully deals with one of the most complex men of recent times. With eloquent prose and an abundance of anecdotes, he imparts insights into Churchill’s character. One cannot say that the strong bass voice of narrator Tom Weiner stays in the background, but his consistency of speech permits listeners to focus on the rich language and details of British history. Although Wiener's treatment abounds with nuance and expression, he avoids mimicking Churchill's famous speaking voice. No rosy portrait of the PM emerges, but the complex character depicted will allow readers to form their own opinions. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2009]
