Churchill: Walking with Destiny by prize-winning historian Andrew Roberts will be the first major biography of Winston Churchill published since 2001. Due out in Britain in October and in the United States the following month, the book benefits from research into the vast amount of material that has only become available in the present century including access to the diaries of King George VI.

Andrew Roberts has been writing about Winston Churchill for thirty years. He has published five books that involve Churchill, but this will be the first dedicated biography he has written about the Greatest Briton. Roberts’s last book was a massive and award-winning biography of Napoleon, whom Churchill greatly admired. After such an undertaking, there was only one other person about whom Roberts could write that would be an even greater challenge.
Roberts will be touring the UK and the US in the fall to speak about his book. The highlight will be at the 2018 Churchill Conference in Williamsburg, Virginia. Copies of the book will be available for sale, and a book-signing is included in the conference schedule.
