Associated University Presses, 1st ed., 1992. 192 pp. D.j., 24 x 16cm. FINE. This study of Churchill's sensibility is an attempt to portray ' through a scrutiny of his written and spoken words ' the ineffable mental processes at the border of thought and feeling. It is also a collection of observations made by acquaintances of the man, critics and historians. The book seeks to present Churchill's "harmony of interests", his major thoughts and feelings on half a dozen major topics ' literature, conservatism, war, Marlborough, America, and the Great Man. From so much of this we reach some understanding of what shaped the decisions of the Prime Minister who led Britain through World War II.
