Abstract

I do not like Ponting's book and I disagree with John Newsinger's review. Ponting is relentlessly negative and meanspirited. There is not a generous word for Churchill in all the book's 900 pages, and few for anyone else. Everything in his life and work and every aspect of his character is cast in an unfavorable light.
