Beautifully drawn, bursting with facts and highly accessible, this graphic biography will introduce a whole new generation of readers to Churchill’s incredible career and important legacy.
I must admit this was totally not what I expected I don’t know but I saw it was a graphic biography and I just imagined lots of drawings and pictures about Churchill. But it was a number of Churchill photos at the beginning of the book but it was then a graphic story of Churchill’s life covering the major points. It was like a Marvel/Commando comic crossed with Winston Churchill. What a pleasant surprise and a brilliant idea. Here’s for why, I have a 16-year-old son, he saw me looking through the book, and as a fan of Marvel comics he said ‘Oh cool, I’ll have a look at that if you want.’ Boom, suddenly you have a teenager reading about history. So you have both our opinion in this review.UK Historian
We thought it was an excellent book, I read it in few hours and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was quite accurate for what you can get into ‘comic’ style and most of the artwork was well planned and drawn. My son was very impressed with it and enjoyed having a read, and that’s from someone who doesn’t usually do history but does like reading comic books. So this is why I would give it a 5 star rating because it entertained two generations and it got both into history in a differing way than usual. I could see this being a good series of books if this was the plan, maybe even if it was just the major players in some of history’s biggest events. If you're looking for in-depth knowledge, you won't get it, it's a comic strip but a very good one indeed.
I read this book the day that it arrived – I had been looking forward to reading it – and it was well worth the wait and a real difference from the run of the mill, standard biographies that you can get on Winston Churchill – and as the book stays from the outset in the Foreword, there are over 1,000 available…Donna's Book Blog
I thought that this was an excellent book – it claims to be a graphic biography and that is exactly what you get – The book focuses on key moments in his life and career and I thought that it was superb and the images in the book are stunning too.
