Reader recommendation: Road to Victory
Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.
It took me three months to get through Road to Victory by MartinÂ Gilbert, which details the day-to-day events in the life of Sir Winston Churchill fromÂ 1941-1945. Books about any war can be depressing, but this wasÂ fascinatingÂ and wonderfully uplifting, even humorous with recollections and diary entries from Churchill's family, friends, and colleagues who observed hisÂ brilliant leadership and determination in the face of Nazi tyranny. ThisÂ truly was "his finest hour".
