Leading E-Book Publisher Brings Churchill Story to the Digital Age
RosettaBooks have now published in eBook format Churchill: A Life by Sir Martin Gilbert. Originally published in 1991, the single-volume biography was written by Sir Martin Gilbert after he completed work on the narrative volumes of the Official Biography. Finest Hour recently rated it as still one of the very best Churchill biographies available. The electronic format is perfect for today’s e-reader / iPad / smartphone generation. Parents and grandparents of students will find that the work makes an ideal gift. To order the book, please CLICK HERE.
Wrongly assumed by some to be an abridgement of the official biography’s eight volumes, this is a completely original narrative. Especially important are the early chapters covering Churchill’s youth and the start of his political career. These contain information not available to Randolph Churchill when he wrote the first two volumes of the official biography, which cover this time period.
Also available is Churchill by Himself: The Life, Times and Opinions of Winston Churchill in his Own Words edited by Richard M. Langworth, editor of Finest Hour. This is the most complete and accurate compilation of Churchill quotations (both real and imagined) ever published. Entries are arranged alphabetically by subject matter. There is also a “Red Herrings” section to cover all those alleged stories that do not pass muster. First published in 2008, the book has been fully revised and updated. No collector should be without. To order, please CLICK HERE.
Lee Pollock, The Churchill Centre’s Executive Director, stated that “the Centre is delighted that RosettaBooks have made these and other Churchill classics available in a format that today’s readers find so convenient. Undoubtedly most new books written about Churchill will now appear as e-books, but it is also important to provide easy access to older works, especially those as significant as Churchill: A Life.”
