WINSTON CHURCHILL by John B. Severance

WINSTON CHURCHILL

Soldier, Statesman, Artist
Age Range: 10 - 14

KIRKUS REVIEW

 An extraordinary biography of a fascinating, larger-than-life man; Severance's first book is a carefully organized, inclusive, balanced, and affectionate portrait of a man whose public life stretched over half a century. All the highs and lows--personal and political--of Churchill's life are covered, sometimes through the judicious use of his own voluminous writings and extensive correspondence. The subtitle, ``Soldier, Statesman, Artist,'' is given credence through ample documentation, as is his enduring relationship with his wife; a section of ``Winston's Wit'' establishes Churchill's continuing quotability. A crisp, open design features well-chosen, effectively placed black-and-white photographs that make this very readable work even more accessible. (bibliography, index) (Biography. 10-14)
