Storyline

In 1932 Churchill visited Germany to research his ancestor's biography but missed meeting Hitler. Starkey argues that the so-called Wilderness Years of the 1930s were misnamed as the decade long account of the life of John Churchill enabled Winston to see a parallel between Hitler and Louis XIV,the seemingly unstoppable conqueror of the rest of Europe,whom John Churchill soundly defeated at the battle of Blenheim in 1704. As a consequence he received the dukedom of Marlborough and the residence of Blenheim Palace. In 1938,when the fourth and last volume of the biography was published,Neville Chamberlain made his futile trip to Munich,where he was betrayed by Hitler. Winston foresaw the German's treachery and,in two years' time,found his country anxious to return him as their leader. Written by don @ minifie-1
