«Included in The Independent's Books of the month for May 2022»

Independent

«For Tariq Ali, Churchill debunking, like Churchill worship, is a political act.»

David Aaronovitch, The Times

«In Ali's telling, which draws on more honest existing historical scholarship than most popular biographies of Churchill, the two-times prime minister emerges not so much as deeply racist - some of his contemporaries remarked on it in shock - as profoundly authoritarian, with a soft spot for fascist strongmen, and a hostility to working-class assertion.»

Priyamvada Gopal, Prospect

«Ali portrays Churchill as cruel, incompetent and blinded by prejudice»

Spectator

«A Marxist insult to history.»

Simon Heffer, The Telegraph

«An essential antidote to the Churchill myth...This book could not be more timely.»

Lindsey German, Counterfire

«A counter to popular mythology; an effort to peel back the curtain of propaganda and locate truth ... a worthy contribution in a crowded field»

Labour Hub, Talal Hangari

«Ali's book is a helpful corrective to the cult of Churchill that has come to dominate British culture. His study makes one thing clear: there is ultimately no path to a socialist and internationalist future without challenging this legacy.»

Liam Kennedy, Jacobin

«Ali's examination remains an important corrective to the hagiographic praise that Churchill receives to this day.»

Andrew Moravcsik, Foreign Affairs

«[Ali] seeks not so much to flush WC down the toilet of history, but to reassign him to his rightful place as one of history's most over-rated figures ... [a] highly readable book»

Donald Sassoon, Political Quarterly

«The important thing about Ali's book, even after a thousand on the same subject, is that it is primarily interested in Churchill's years in service to British imperialism, and only secondarily interested in World War II, inverting the usual balance...a vital corrective.»

Alex Skopic, Current Affairs
