In the footsteps of Churchill by Richard Holmes( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Footsteps of Churchill is both a study in character and the story of an extraordinary career. Historian Richard Holmes uses new material to investigate the influences that shaped the man: his schooldays, his flamboyant father, Randolph, and his attractive American mother, Jennie. Holmes argues that the qualities that made Churchill great also led him to commit catastrophic blunders. The recklessness that made him a hero when he was a young correspondent during the Boer War, for example, cost thousands of Allied lives during his planning of the Gallipoli campaign in 1915, and may also have contributed to the fall of Singapore in 1942

Tommy : the British soldier on the Western Front, 1914-1918 by Richard Holmes( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Holme's landmark book Tommy puts the direct experience of the ordinary British soldier centre stage. This is not the war as interpreted retrospectively by historians, but the war as it was felt--in the midst of battle, enduring the boredom of waiting, the exhaustion of travelling to and from the Front, of sharing a mug of tea with a friend and seeing him blown to tatters moments later. This is not an army of 'lions' led by 'donkeys'. It eschews such cliches. This is the war as it was fought, in the words of those that fought it."--Book jacket
