Andrew Roberts took a first class honours degree in Modern History at Cambridge University. He has now written or edited twelve books including Masters & Commanders, (2008), a study of the Anglo-American high command during the Second World War which earned The Churchill Centre’s Emery Reves Award. For a video of Dr. Roberts discussing this book, please CLICK HERE. Dr. Roberts’ other Churchill-related books include The Holy Fox (1991), a biography of Lord Halifax, and the authorized biography of Lord Salisbury under whom Lord Randolph Churchill served as Chancellor of the Exchequer and who was still prime minister when young Winston Churchill first entered Parliament. Eminent Churchillians (1994) presents character studies of several Churchill contemporaries including Lord Mountbatten while A History of the English Speaking Peoples Since 1900 (2006) is nothing less than his own attempt to complete the four-volume history started by Churchill himself.
