This was originally published in 1952 by Doubleday.
This biography of the iconic mid-20th century British Prime Minister focuses more on his earlier private life than his later publicly-renowned deeds, starting with the historical background of his immediate family and the influence of their ancestry, and going on to explore the years Churchill spent as a student, journalist, and soldier before entering politics.

Former British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, led one of the most astonishing lives that public service has ever witnessed.
In An Informal Study of Greatness, Taylor presents the early life of this mythologised and prodigiously talented man.
Focusing on the school years of a young Winston Churchill and the early experiences that shaped his ambition, this fascinating biography delves into the private life of Churchill as a student, a journalist and a soldier.
This a delightful and revealing study of a man who, as Taylor puts it, was one of ‘multiple genius’ and ‘one of the most exasperating figures of history.’
