MHM 137 Competition

Put your military history knowledge to the test with our competition.

This issue, we’re giving away three copies of Mirrors of Greatness: Churchill and the leaders who shaped him by David Reynolds, courtesy of William Collins.

Winston Churchill was in many ways defined by the figures he encountered throughout his life, from politicians such as Neville Chamberlain and Franklin Roosevelt, and dictators like Hitler and Mussolini, to close family members – including his adored father Randolph and beloved wife Clementine.

Mirrors of Greatness, the new book by best-selling historian David Reynolds, offers a vivid perspective on Churchill’s life, showing how this unique man – with dazzling gifts and jagged flaws – learned from his ‘great contemporaries’ and what they saw in him.

Three lucky winners will each receive a copy of the book. To find out more about William Collins, visit
