Biography & Memoir • 39.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

From his early days in the British military in the late nineteenth century to his compelling role in global politics during both World Wars, Winston Churchill was a master at self-promotion and political intrigue. Written by one of his later contemporaries, this exhaustively researched biography covers the minutiae of the statesman’s life in excruciating detail. Robert Whitfield survives the 39 hours necessary to commit the tome to tape, courageously soldiering through the dusty text. He offers a few characterizations, namely in East Indian and French dialects, and performs a credible imitation of Churchill as heard in his later recorded speeches. This portrayal, however, changes not a whit from Churchill’s teens until his death. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
