This issue, we’re giving away three copies of Churchill: Master and Commander by Anthony Tucker-Jones, courtesy of Osprey Publishing.
From a young age, Winston Churchill’s desire for public attention and propensity to take risks to achieve this, meant that on occasions he gambled and lost spectacularly. His lust for military adventure led him to action in Cuba, India, Sudan, and South Africa.
Churchill later served on the Western Front in World War I. These early military experiences convinced him that he was equipped to oversee British strategy during World War II, which he did in his combined role as both Prime Minister and Defence Minister.
This fascinating book by Anthony Tucker-Jones, newly out in paperback, explores the extensive military and political career of the UK’s most renowned and respected wartime leader, and examines how his formative military experiences influenced his strategic leadership at the highest level.
This issue, three lucky winners will each receive a copy of the book. To find out more about Osprey, please visit www.ospreypublishing.com.
