Overview

An analysis of the writings of the iconic twentieth-century statesman from the author of Young Winston’s Wars.
 
Only a part-time author, Sir Winston Churchill wrote fifty books and over eight hundred feature articles. He even received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953.
 
Now, Frederick Woods, an internationally acknowledged expert in the field of Churchillian writings, presents a full-length appraisal of Churchill’s literary output, while putting the writings in the context of Churchill's public life.
 
Churchill’s words were weapons, argues Mr. Woods, written deliberately to win a battle, whether that battle was over the future of India, the fate of the freedom-loving world, the rehabilitation of renowned ancestors, or his own fluctuating reputation. In every case Churchill strove mightily to win, and often presented his case with less objectivity than that expected of one popularly considered to be a major historian.
 
Artillery of Words is not only an illuminating and often witty analysis of Churchill’s writings; it is also an important and revealing contribution to Churchillian studies in general.
 
Praise for Frederick Woods’s A Bibliography of the Works of Sir Winston Churchill
“[Reveals] a mastery of both research and presentation.” —Martin Gilbert, bestselling author of Churchill: A Life
