According to Henry Kissinger, 'Our age finds it difficult to come to grips with Churchill. The political leader with whom we are familiar generally aspire to be superstars rather than heroes. The distinction is crucial. Superstars strive for approbation; heroes walk alone. Superstars crave consensus; heroes define themselves by the judgment of a future they see it as their task to bring about. Superstars seek success in a technique for eliciting support; heroes pursue success as the outgrowth of their inner values.'
Winston Churchill was a hero. In this incisive look at his leadership in action we see what it was that enabled him to do what few others have ever accomplished in the long annals of history: stand for principal and prevail. Recommended for ages 10 and up. 233 pages, hardcover, from Highland books.
