Very interesting and also a good read.
This book is a must!
A gripping expose
Excellent history revisited
Truly a masterpiece. The book's title conceals the full extent of this epic, vivid and fascinating saga of the life and times of probably the most enigmatic national leader of the 20th century. Painstakingly reseached and a compelling read, it is a clearly expounded eye opener for anyone baffled by the origins and developement to the ultimate tragedy of the Balkan bloodbath

An exquisitely written and compelling book -- Mr Batty has done justice to a controversial topic. I couldn't put it down!
Wonderful contribution to an almost forgotten rogue. Thank you Peter Batty! Warm congratulations at this publishing milestone.
I thought there was nothing new to read on Churchill but Batty has proved me wrong!
This is a very important and long overdue book.By means of painstaking research it convincingly demolishes the 'received' British account of the 2nd World War conflicts in Yugoslavia.It guides the reader through a highly complex narrative with remarkable clarity.
