Overview

Many people know that Sir Winston Churchill (1874–1965) was a British statesman and prime minister, a speechmaker who led his country through World War II. What, perhaps, they don't know is that he came under enemy fire over 50 times; that he took 36 bottles of wine, 18 of scotch and 6 of brandy to the Boer War; that he painted over 600 works of art and won the Nobel Prize for Literature; and that he developed his taste for Havana cigars while working as a war correspondent in Cuba. This book presents an ingenious guide to his life and work, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the politician behind the politics.

Reviews

"The Biographic Series is an exciting new collection of biographies about some of the world's greatest thinkers, writers, artists and cultural innovators. Whilst each book could be read cover to cover, readers are more likely to randomly select pages, stopping and pausing to find out more about the subject . . . The infographics are visually appealing and entertaining, perhaps reinvigorating an interest in the subject . . .The legacy of artists, such as Monet and Van Gogh are particularly well documented in their Biographic." —Armadillo magazine

"This is a most attractive booklet, full of intriguing titbits of information . . . While it would make an ideal present for a young—or not-so-young—Churchillian, it should also be acquired by librarians keen to attract a changing public, including university students, too often put off by conventional books." —cercles.com
