    This well presented book presented some stunning photographs I hadn t seen before and many well known pictures and the stories behind them However I was slightly frustrated by the many omissions along the story of this great man s life Perhaps I have just read too many biographies of the Churchill family.

    CHURCHILL THE LIFE An Authorized Pictorial Biography by Max Arthur, is exactly the type of biography I enjoy the most I am not one to read biographies, auto or not, as I tend to find them much too detailed for my taste I want to read about a person, to understand them and their times a bit better, but I do not need to delve into every thing that happened in their entire life Give me the highlights with just a smidgeon of background so I can settle the accounting into the proper timeline of the person s life, and let me go from there I find minute by minute accounts of a person s life taxing and, at times, utterly unbelievable I can hardly remember what I had for lunch ten days ago let alone a picnic on a hillside in the valley of the Rhine forty yeas ago Which brings me to this lavishly illustrated synopsis of the great man s life This book serves as a sparkling introduction to Churchill s career for the newcomer and a pictorial history to broaden a well read viewer s understanding of the man Chock a block crammed with both photos and copies of some important documents, THE LIFE tells the tale of his birth, his troubled times at boarding school remember teachers, even the most troubling of youths can emerge from their young chrysalis as a staunch butterfly , his early military career and his rise in British politics Throughout the book key moments of his life and times are illustrated with enlightening photographs of the man, his family, and the key peoples of his time From young Army officer to WWII Prime Minister and every stop in between, it is all here in a concise and orderly fashion But consider this book a mere introduction into one of the 20th century s leading statesmen While this satisfies my need for learning about Churchill, do not let this be your last stop on the learning train, for there are many tales to discover as well as a wealth on details into how he thought and lived which are not explored here The selection of photographs and writings are a commendable set and Mr Arthur s keen eye and sense of editing are to be noted as he has produced a biography that is eloquent and terse simultaneously I won this work though the Goodreads program and it will be a valued addition to my collection.
